How cool is to mix up your hobbies with your career path especially if it includes the use of technology? There is so much we can take from technology and incorporate it into our lifes. Just like that we have Miral Kotb, who used technology with dance!
Miral’s dream was to become a professional dancer, but she also loved coding. As a student, these two professional paths seemed entirely separate to her. However, Miral did not settle for the status quo. After working as a software engineer at Bloomberg, she realized that the two seemingly separate worlds of dance and code could come together to create something magical. Eventually, iLuminate was born.
In 2009, Miral Kotb founded iLuminate, a dance group that uses wireless lighting programs to create explosive and colorful performances, and she serves as its CEO today. Since iLuminate’s debut on America’s Got Talent in 2011, the group has traveled across the world performing with The Black Eyed Peas and David Guetta, as well as starring in an Off-Broadway show and The X Factor.
In the video below, learn more about Miral’s discovery of combining dance and code and how she brings together her passions with iLuminate!
