Mia Vera

Founding and Artistic Director

Mia has been dancing her whole life and has been a dance instructor for over 10 years. She studied dance and apprenticed under direction of Judy Williams Henry in Lebanon County, and has participated in Point Park University’s International Dance Program. Some of Mia’s fondest dance performance memories include performing at Disneyland Paris and at The United Nations. Mia’s passion for teaching came at an early age, and she became a certified instructor through Dance and Gym USA at 16 years old. From then on, she has gained teaching experience at various elementary schools including The New School of Lancaster and Lititz Christian School, teaching the fundamentals of music and movement exploration. Mia has choreographed at Gretna Theater for seven years and has choreographed for various community dance and theater events as well as a cruise ship performance group. When Mia isn't teaching dance, she performs with Lancaster based professional dance companies and spends the rest of her time with her family creating, making messes, and exploring nature. Mia loves helping children bridge the gap between visual and performing arts, so she founded the nonprofit Full Circle Studios whose mission it is to allow ALL children the opportunity to experience meaningful education in music, art, and dance.
