Megan O’Brien is dancer/artist born in Salt Lake City, Utah. At a young
age, she fell in love with movement and performance when she created impromptu shows to classic rock songs for her mom and dad. For 15 years Megan extensively trained at The Winner School in many different styles of dance. She continued her training at the University of Utah School of Dance on full scholarship and graduated in 2017 with a BFA in Modern Dance. Throughout her training Megan has had the privilege to learn from and work with Danielle Agami (Ate9 Dance), LajaMartin, 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 LajaMartin, Michio Ito, Bill Evans, Lesley Telford, Stephen Koester, Nick Blaylock, and Sharee Lane. She is compelled to share her art and passion with the community through independent choreographic projects and through nurturing the growth of young artists by teaching at many local schools (K-12) and dance studios in Utah. This is her second season working with Repertory Dance Theatre.
