Miles danced with the Royal Ballet, London Metropolitan Ballet, and Sadler's Wells Opera Ballet. Miles moved to the United States in 1957 to pursue a teaching career. After working in theater and doing freelance teaching, Miles settled at Colorado State University. There he started a student ballet company, Le Petit Ballet de Chambre.
