In 2005, Megan began her dance education and has since traveled around the world to learn, teach, organize and compete. She specializes in dances of the jazz era, including lindy hop, balboa, collegiate shag, Charleston, Saint Louis shag, and more. She has performed with the Sugarfoot Follies, Big Apple Lindy Hoppers, Ground Grippers, Rainier Rhythm, and more.
Megan believes African movement is the core of these dances. She began African dance in 2006 and continues her training today in the Washington, D.C.-area. In February and March 2014, she traveled to Guinea, West Africa to study with members of Les Ballets Africains and Ballet Matambe. In 2015, she will work with One World Dance & Drum (Seattle, Washington) on the first West African lindy exchange.
