A Stafford, Virginia native, Megs trained at the Barton and Williams School of Dance. While in high school she was the captain of the nationally ranked North Stafford Dance Team where she had the opportunity to perform in the Macys Thanksgiving Parade and the New Year’s Parade in Paris, France. She continued to perform and choreograph in college for the Dance Company of Virginia Tech. Megs realized early on that her passion for teaching was as big as her dream to dance. During her college summers she was a Universal Dance Association Head Instructor where she taught and judged competitions all over the country. During the school year she was a company director and teacher for the Dance.Tech Performing Arts Studio in Blacksburg, Va.
After college Megs moved back up to Northern Virginia where she coached a local high school while teaching classes at Metropolitan Fine Arts Center. Her desire to perform landed her a spot on the NBA Washington Wizards Dance Team and then the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders. She retired from the Redskins after 3 years but still continues to work with the cheerleaders as a Sideline Assistant and is a coordinator for the “First Little Ladies Football”: the Junior Redskins Cheerleaders.
Megs is thrilled to be a part of the Sideline Prep family. She loves to help dancers strengthen their style and technique; but above all, achieve their dreams in dance!
Meg’s Pro Tip
No matter how advanced or skilled you are as a dancer, there is always room to improve. One mistake that I see every year is technical dancers being over confident in the process and not working to create the full package of having the knowledge, dance style, and glamour. On the other hand, if you do not have a technical dance background, it’s okay! Some of most prepared clients didn’t have a strong dance background. Start taking dance classes to work on the basics and learn the fundamentals of dance. Work hard at it, attend prep classes…. Coaches and Directors will recognize your effort!
