About

MEGAN MARY O’BRIEN is dancer/artist born in Salt Lake City, Utah. At a young age, she fell in love with dancing and performing when she began to create impromptu shows to classic rock songs for her mom and dad. For 15 years she trained at The Winner School extensively in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, tap, contemporary, modern, and ballroom, as well as competing at National and International competitions. She continued her training at the University of Utah School of Dance with a scholarship and in Spring 2017 she graduated with a BFA in Modern Dance. Throughout her training Megan has had the privilege to learn from and work with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Company 605 (Vancouver), The Penguin Lady, and the Staatliche Ballettschule School located in Berlin, Germany. She has performed in works by artists LajaMartin, Lesley Telford, Stephen Koester, Nick Blaylock, Sharee Lane, Pamela Handman, and Bill Evans. She is compelled to share her art and passion with the community by nurturing the growth of young artists by teaching at local elementary schools and dance studios The Winner School and Creative Arts Academy, as well as the Education Associate alongside RDT’s Education Director, Lynne Larson.
