Born and raised in Columbus, Georgia, Maiya has been dancing since the tender age of three years old. Throughout the years she’s explored many genres of dance, but it was jazz, tap, and hip hop that truly won her over. After years of dancing and choreographing for Melissa Williams & her dance ministry, Maiya joined Prodigy Dance Centre’s senior company during it’s first year in 2008. As the studio grew, so did her experience which ultimately led her to become a star member and captain of Valdosta State’s nationally ranked D2 dance team, the Red Hots. After graduating with a business management degree from VSU, she’s been teaching and choreographing at dance studios in Auburn, AL, Tifton, GA and Fitzgerald, GA. Now that she’s back at Prodigy, Maiya can continue to make her imprint on the dance world. Dance is truly her passion and will only continue to take her places as she grows within her craft.
