NEXT SESSION BEGINS January 2024

Is your dance curriculum engaging and inclusive or struggling to reach students and overwhelmed with trying to figure out what to teach next?


Creating an engaging inclusive dance curriculum doesn’t have to be overwhelming and stressful 


Mya D. Specialist is here for you Click here to schedule a chat



By the end of this four-month course, you will have the framework and necessary tools to create a completed dance curriculum that contains at least two completed units, both formal and informal assessments, class procedures, and a course syllabus. 


A lack of knowledge is not your problem.

You want happy students that are learning about themselves and others all while learning about dance. You want to teach a curriculum that helps students grow, feel included, and empowered. You want a curriculum that you can actually teach.


In your head, this is a beautiful utopian idea, but in reality, you are overwhelmed and may be confused because you have no idea where to start. 


You spent countless hours searching the internet for easy lessons that you can cut and paste to fit your needs, you might have even considered purchasing a pre-made curriculum and making the adjustments as necessary. 


It’s frustrating and time-consuming and after all that time you still don’t have the curriculum that speaks to you and your students. 



You can have a curriculum you want to teach and feel good about teaching. 


Your teaching style is inside of you and not out on the internet somewhere and that is why the cut paste, patchwork, the process hasn’t worked for you. 


I’ve seen colleagues and other amazing dancers spend their wheels for months struggling and searching and that is why I created this program.

No cookie-cutter templates here, only real guidance coaching and support so that you have the necessary tools to create the curriculum of your dreams and the knowledge to repeat again whenever and wherever. Our process includes a combination of group and one on one coaching sessions.  My process uses the principle of Sankofa ( go back and fetch it) as a culturally relevant constructivist model.  That means you build on what you know, using it as a strong individual foundation for your curriculum.

You will also have two individual one on one sessions just to dive a little deeper into your individual ideas or concerns


You will describe the type of experience you want your students to experience in your course and the setting where the course will happen


 Next, I will help you  Map out the journey students will take during their time with you.
