Meg Minter has had a lifelong commitment to the dance industry since the age of 2. She grew up dancing in the competitive circuit traveling abroad to compete both regionally and nationally. She is a 2009 graduate of the University of Texas as a BFA dance major with an emphasis in choreography and performance. It was during her time at UT that she had the privilege to take master classes from Alvin Ailey Dance Company, American Ballet Theatre, Hubbard Street Dance Company, Paradigm Dance Company, Miami City Ballet, Delfos Danza Contemporanea, Gus Solomons Jr., Cornelius Carter, and Atlanta Ballet. Meg was also chosen to perform in works set by resident guest artists such as Twyla Tharp (by Shelley Washington), Hubbard Street’s Harrison McEldowney, and Mark Morris (by Rachel Murray).
Her dance experiences range from modern, contemporary, ballet, composition/improvisation to commercial styles such as jazz and hip hop. Meg has created work for college company concerts, college dance festivals, and youth competitive dance teams. Meg has also choreographed for and produced a dance Cabaret fundraiser from 2011-2015 for Rockwall High School in Rockwall, Texas managing a cast of over 200 performers each year. Under her direction, these shows exceeded fundraising goals and expectations for 5 years- producing sold-out performances annually and raising over $150,000 for that high school extracurricular program. She is also a certified high school dance teacher in Texas for grades 8-12. Prior to opening Studio of MoveMINT, Meg spent 3 years working at an advertising agency in Fort Worth as a production and accounting manager.
With over 17 years of dance performance training and over 15 years of teaching experience, Meg’s heart is in choreographing and training the next generation of performing artists. Opening Studio of MoveMINT has proven to be one of the biggest blessings in her life- allowing her to provide a lighthouse to the Fort Worth community for dancers of all ages. The studio has grown from 50 students to over 500 in under 4 years- a testament to her and her faculty. Meg lives here in Fort Worth with her husband, Kyle, and their kiddos- Stella and Major.
