  • What grade is Dance Equations for?
    The exercises and lessons in the BEYOND MOVEMENT eBook were developed by Miranda during her years working within elementary schools. It can be used for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6 easily. The program was designed to help teachers, with no dance experience, to teach dance and to use mathematics as a theme. In addition to drawing inspiration from mathematics, it teaches mathematical concepts through exploring space, time, force, and body. The books are a general guide with key foundational exercises and concepts. The purpose is to prepare the teacher to be able to create his/her own math dance lessons focuses on their school's curriculum and grade level. However the book does have lessons, guides, worksheets, and examples. Students in secondary or high school can also use the DANCE EQUATIONS method of teaching mathematics. The BEYOND MOVEMENT resource explains the foundation of the method. Older students should work through the 1st book quickly, using it as an introduction to the concept of utilizing mathematics to create dance. They should then focus more on choreography and the use of advanced mathematical problems. The second edition called CHOREOGRAPHY & MATHEMATICS takes us deep into the world of mathematics with dance, connecting dance with equations, functions, frequency, harmonics, ratios, and tone. What Miranda gives you is a new method of expressing math because dance is the embodiment of mathematics. Individual coaching is used to help teachers develop lessons specific to their grade level. Dance is a new tool for your tool box and she's certain that once you see the connection, you can't unsee it.

  • Is DANCE EQUATIONS too easy for students with dance experience?
    Students who’ve had professional dance experience may find some of the exercises easy. However, every professional dancer uses improvisation to develop choreography. Especially if looking for original movement aesthetics. In our experience, students with dance training like ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop may have difficulty coming up with their own movement and will rely on steps they know. For these students, it is important to move them out of that comfort zone. They should focus on finding their own expression, develop their own steps, and focus on using mathematics to create original choreography.
  • Can I see a sample lesson and video?
    Lessons, videos, and other support materials are all accessible in the paid members’ area. If you would like to see any examples please contact Miranda through email or the WIX app and she will send you the samples you require. Her email is You will find some samples on her YouTube channel and she is actively growing her collection.
  • Is Miranda available for workshops in person?
    Miranda is always looking to work with schools and school boards. She currently lives in San Jose, Costa Rica, and works primarily online or in this region. However, having Miranda in person is always an option. This would require you to pay travel and accommodation expenses in addition to her workshop fees. However, host schools are given the opportunity to offset these costs by selling tickets to workshops, events, and performances. Please contact Miranda if you want DEKO to perform or would prefer in-person workshops.
  • Can Miranda teach choreography to advanced dance students?
    Miranda has worked with art schools in the past as an artist in residence. Her production called “DUST…” is a 30-minute full-length piece that involves all the concepts outlined in DANCE EQUATIONS. It was developed with professional dancers and has been performed through dance companies. It is currently available to tour with her company DEKO (Dance Equations & Kompany). If you would like Miranda to set this piece on your students or with your dance company, please contact her at Should your school become a host school you can work with Miranda to offset the companies fees through event and ticket sales.
