Megan specializes in teaching intermediate-advanced level ballet technique for professional contemporary dancers. Her somatic approach encourages students to connect with their breath, pelvic floor and core support while performing complex sequences that emphasize musicality and spatial awareness. Starting with barre work, and continuing through center practice with adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegros, dancers will develop greater awareness of their dynamic alignment in order to maximize physical expression, and discover greater ease in movement. Big, bold, luscious dancing, from the inside-out.
