WHAT IS DANCE EQUATIONS?
Dance Equations is a math dance system that helps educators teach math to all grade levels through arts integration. It is designed to supplement any math curriculum. More specifically, the books and resources demonstrate how to teach dance curriculum and how to use it as a fundamental teaching tool. In fact, dance is often a better way to introduce mathematical concepts and this system can replace work done sitting at a desk with group work, centers, creative workshops, and online learning.
Dance Equations is designed to make math fun and get kids dancing!
You don’t need any formal dance training to use our lessons. Through Dance Equations, you will learn how to guide students through their own math dance discoveries. This is what makes Dance Equations distinct from other programs.
Through Dance Equations you will discover:
cross-curricular linkages to further enhance what you already know;
new ways to integrate mathematics with other subject areas,
many tools to engage ESL students and children with learning disabilities;
new methods to energize and motivate your students;
and, another way to enhance your drama and dance curriculum.
eBOOKS AND MATERIALS FOR INSTANT DOWNLOAD
The most effective way to implement Dance Equations is to purchase a Member's Package. Through the member's area, you will have access to all of the eBooks, video pages, music, and newly created content. In addition we provide supplemental math resources, private coaching, and online dance courses. If you are familiar with the program and would like to purchase an instant download, you may do so here. The three products below are considered the base and starting point of the program.
IN THE PRESS
"Miranda Abbott can chat about mathematical equations and scientific theories with the grace of a dancer. When she talks about numbers, her hands are in constant motion; her body moves this way and that."

Our student workshops fit easily into daily school routines; we can provide four workshops a day, with 15 minutes to set up and an hour for each workshop. A gymnasium or multipurpose room is the best location for the workshops as students will need to move around without feeling inhibited by space constraints. Teachers are invited to join in; the work is easy to learn. It is suggested that each school purchase Dance Equations’ Beyond Movement to get the most out of the workshop.
Professional Development workshops expand on all of the concepts in Beyond Movement, our main Dance Equations resource. This includes detailed instructions on how to create lessons and how to enhance the mathematical curriculum. The Dance Equations program includes webinars, online help, and advice at any time. Miranda personally leads teachers through lessons showing how dance is educational on many levels, particularly in mathematics.
