Munroe, and Wanda Ward.
After a one-year appointment at Smith College, in 1963, she was hired to teach modern and folk dance at Hunter College's branch campus in the Bronx, which became Lehman College in 1968. In 1970, Miller became the director of Lehman's dance program, implementing a B.A. and B.F.A. at the first CUNY school to have a dance program. She would direct Lehman's dance program for the next thirty years. That same year, she founded her company, The Joan Miller Chamber Arts/Dance Players, and premiered her signature solo, Pass Fe White, which she had been working on since 1968. Joan curated professional artists from across New York City to teach in the dance department at Lehman, including Chuck Davis, Yon Martin, Miguel Godreau, Nadine Revine, Louis Falco, Juan Antonio, Rudy Perez, Nancy Topf, and John Parks. Among the choreographers Miller brought in to set work on the Lehman students were Eleo Pomare, Rael Lamb, Alvin Ailey (who choreographed his signature piece Revelations there), and later, Abdel Salaam.

As a result, Miller danced as a guest artist with the companies of José Limón and Anna Sokolow and as a member of the Lincoln Center American Dance Theatre Company. During the summers, she had begun to study with modern dance choreographers Doris Humphrey and José Limón at Connecticut College, and with Louis Horst in New York. In 1964, Joan began to dance with the Rod Rodgers Dance Company. From 1965 to 1968, Miller danced with James Waring, Remy Charlip, Yvonne Rainer and Rudy Perez, artists who were associated with the Judson Dance Theater and avant-garde dance communities.
