Girl, 10, Patents Nation's Only School Bus Dance Studio. Says The Idea Came To Her In A Dream.

MyFoxDetroit Reports

You see many buses on the streets of Detroit everyday. However, one stands out not only because of its bold, pink color, but also because of the personality of its CEO whose determination is the driver.

The brains behind this bus is ten-year-old Amiya Alexander. She created the business that has become Amiya's Mobile Dance Academy. It was an idea that came to her in the middle of the night. At first, her mother wasn't exactly thrilled.

"I sketched it out on a little piece of paper and I came to her and she (said,) "why"... I (said,) "Mom, I have a plan," said Amiya Alexander.

Alexander's vision was nothing short of incredible. It was to get a bus, paint it pink, take the seats out, decorate it, hire instructors and turn it into a dance studio on wheels.


"She said my classes are going to be reasonable. They're not going to be expensive, because I have to help those children who can't afford these expensive dance classes," said Tebereh Alexander.

So, while bringing the bus to teach kids as young as two the finer points of ballet, tap and hip hop, Alexander also carefully considered the legal side of the business while presenting her grand plan to mom.

"It listed everything she needed... She had her insurance on there. She needed an attorney. She needed marketing and business cards and flyers. So, it listed everything," Tebereh Alexander said.

When you see the big pink bus cruising the streets, no doubt you would think it was a major enterprise, but it's Alexander running the company. She is also just as serious about her school work as she is about her footwork. "Her passion is dance, but I also instill in her that education is first. That's her priority," said Tebereh Alexander.

Alexander is an excellent student and has even higher aspirations for her life that not only include dancing, but a career in medicine.

"I love anatomy. It's my favorite subject at school," said Amiya Alexander. So much so that she has ultimately set her sites on Havard Medical School. Even now, at her young age, she soaks in everything she can from her mentors at Sinai-Grace Hospital.

"I really want to be an obstrycian and a dancer... I'd like to be a doctor because I really like learning about systems and how the body works... It's very interesting to me being with children. So, people are saying I should be a peditrician, but... I kind of like babies a little more. So, I thought I could deliver the babies," Amiya Alexander said.


Until then, Alexander is just happy surrounding herself with children whom she can teach and share her love of dance. It's kind of hard to remember she's still just a little girl.

"I see her being mature for her age and I want her to know I don't want her to grow up too fast," said Tebereh Alexander.

For this inspiring little ten-year-old, it's not so much the destination as it is the journey. "She's my little inspiration and she's my little heart," Tebereh Alexander said.
