Kira and Kalani

Kira decided to enroll Kalani into dance classes since it was fun and cute to dress her up, never realizing how much her daughter would grow into the dancer she is today. Although she never danced in her life, Kira and her family are very involved in all aspects of Kalani’s dance career. Kira wants her daughter to do what she loves without pressuring and nagging her. Her advice for Kalani on "Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition" is to work hard, do the best she can and to stay true to who she is! Kira and Kalani currently reside in Arizona.

I’d say Dance Mom/mom-manager. I say this cause my focus is Kalani, not on what everyone else is doing. I make sure Kalani is getting great training as well as being treated fairly no matter what. I do not worry about what goes on around us or what others say at all—it’s all about Kalani!
