Miriah is a professional contemporary dancer, rehearsal director, creator, and teacher based out of Montreal.
Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, she started dancing at the age of three at Halifax Dance, where she completed the Russian ballet syllabus. At the age of 15, Miriah completed her teacher training and, at the same time, was first introduced to Pilates.
She then began teaching creative movement, ballet, hip hop, and jazz to all ages. During this time, she also studied International Development studies at Dalhousie University. Miriah?s ongoing desire to be a professional dancer led her to move to Montreal to complete LADMMI?s professional contemporary dance program.
It was here that her love of teaching and Pilates grew into a dream to someday open her own Pilates studio. After graduating in 2009, she danced for companies in Vancouver, New York, Toronto, Halifax, and Montreal for Louise Bedard Danse, Manon Oligny, Heidi Strauss, Andrew Tay, Alejandro de Leon, and David Pressault.
Miriah then went on to take many training courses such as her STOTT PILATES certification, BootyBarre certification, and many Eric Franklin workshops. Miriah has taught at numerous studios and gyms around Montreal. She is dedicated to helping clients obtain their goals and finds it exciting to watch changes happen in their bodies, either in terms of structural alignment or musculature. She is a co-owner of Studio Set.
