Born and raised in Dallas, Meg was a competitive dancer from ages 4-18. In 2009, she graduated from the University of Texas earning a BFA in modern dance with an emphasis in choreography and performance. It was during her time at UT that she had the privilege to take 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 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).
Meg has created choreography for college dance concerts and festivals, and youth competitive dance teams for studios all over Texas. Meg also choreographed for and produced an annual dance fundraiser from 2011-2015 for Rockwall High School 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 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.
With over 17 years of dance performance training and over 19 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 750 in under 6 years- a testament to her vision, her leadership, and the amazing faculty. She has expanded her business twice now- from 2,000 square feet to 8,000 square feet.
Meg leads a team of 30 employees, oversees over 90 classes a week, and is the Artistic Director for MoveMINT Dance Company- a youth contemporary company for over 60 dancers. She lives here in Fort Worth with her husband and two kiddos- Stella and Major.
