Miah Thompson graduated from the University of Alabama in Birmingham in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She started teaching social dance at Curt n’ Wendy Dance in 2011, and started choreographing group and single routines in 2012. In 2014, she branched out and created her own company, Dueta Dance. Miah primarily teaches social dance, as well as choreography and competitive ballroom dancing.
Her belief is that anyone can learn how to dance, as long as they have an instructor who believes in them. She uses that belief to motivate her students to excel in dancing, whether it be social, competitive, or performance. She and her students have performed at multiple events, including the Birmingham Ballroom Dance Marathon, Christmas in Dixie, Dancing with the King, and All Star Dance Camp. They have also performed at social dance events, nursing homes, and Children’s Hospital. Miah's passion is choreography, although she enjoys teaching social dance and competitive dance as well. She has experience working with all ages, primarily teens and adolescents, and teaches using both the Arthur Murray syllabus and the DVIDA syllabus.
