Our Story

Our journey of developing Minute Masters began in 2018, when we started an inclusive dance program for children of all abilities. As co-founders and lifelong best-friends, we have always shared many interests, one being our love for music and dance.

As a Certified Special Education Teacher and Pediatric Occupational Therapist, we noticed some limits in engaging activities for individuals with disabilities, one of them being accommodating dance classes.

We combined our areas of expertise and implemented our knowledge to create an adaptive, inclusive dance class. During our dance classes, we created instructional videos for class participants to practice with at home.

The feedback from these videos was overwhelming. The children loved watching them, and the retention of the dance moves was incredible.

Once we realized the effectiveness of the videos that we were sending home, we began to wonder how many other children we could reach using video instruction. We said to each other: “If children could effectively learn dance moves from a simple home-made video, there is endless potential for what else we can teach them.”

We knew we could use this as a way to teach children much more than dance moves. After many hours of brainstorming, we officially became “Minute Masters”, with one goal: to provide inclusive, educational and accessible activities to children everywhere, designed to captivate and motivate learners to master new skills - in under a minute!
