Hi, I'm Miriam Landis and I'm a faculty member at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School and Creation Dance Studio in Seattle, WA. I've done a lot of random things in my life, but the most important three are ballet, book publishing/writing, and most of all, spending my life with my husband and four kids. My goal is to educate and spread my enthusiasm for the things that bring me joy.

I'm the author of the forthcoming Lauren in the Limelight trilogy, as well as Girl in Motion (2010) and Breaking Pointe (2012). Here are some other things I've been: a professional ballerina with Miami City Ballet, a student at the School of American Ballet, an apprentice at Ballet West, a 2022 LitCamp fellow, an assistant editor at Simon & Schuster, Hyperion, and the Amazon Books team, a Stanford grad, an online media manager for Island Books, and a bunch of other stuff. When not writing, I can be found teaching classes at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School and enjoying life on Lake Washington.
