Mireya finds a great source of gratification in the ever-evolving process of investigation in contemporary and post-modern dance. She began her formal training with the Ballet Ecuatoriano de Camara at the age of 13. She studied contemporary dance with Ecuadorian maestros Carlos Cornejo, Terry Araujo and Klever Viera, performing in different productions including Tiro Al Blanco al Pajaro Rojo with Cuban dance company Retazos. She was a member of Taller Permanente de Experimentacion Escenica with Klever Viera from 2012 to 2014, site performing in plazas, parks and streets in Quito, disrupting traffic, showing up, and raising our movement voices.
Mireya has worked in contemporary dance projects in Maryland, Virginia, Texas and Vermont. She worked for Dance Theatre Company AtticRep in San Antonio, Texas, in 2015 and 2016 as a performer and movement choreographer in culturally-rich, diverse collaborative work productions at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts: From the Mahabarata and 14. In San Antonio she met dance artist and activist Fabiola Torralba, who has informed Mireya's work in profound ways. Mireya was part of Fabiola's initiative "Decolonial Epistemlogies Dance Lab" for four years. Locally, Mireya has worked with beautiful Vermont artists Nicole Dagesse, Hanna Satterlee, Joy Madden, Hannah Denison, and Paul Besaw. She was a member of Erika Senft-Miller's Performance Lab two-year project, OffSite OnTime.
Mireya is interested in decolonial perspectives in dance and in "doing work that matters", as Gloria Anzaldua says .. "Vale la pena".
Mireya has also found a home in Laughing River Yoga, where she obtained her 200-hour YTT training. She looks forward to deepening the practice and making it accessible to all, especially those underserved and disconnected.
Mireya was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador. She is a proud mother and wife.
