STUDIO OWNER & INSTRUCTOR

SPECIALTY - AMERICAN SMOOTH & RHYTHM

Meghan was born & raised in Baltimore, MD, where she studied ballet, lyrical and contemporary dance styles as a young girl.  In college, Meghan was hired by Arthur Murray International as a dance teacher in the DC area under the tutelage of United States 9-Dance Champions Joe & Leisa Howard.

In 2013, Meghan was the recipient of Arthur Murray's Top Specialist award, recognizing her as the top instructor for new students company-wide. This award followed a rigorous, months-long process testing both her dance & teaching skills.

In her years at Arthur Murray, Meghan received extensive dance, teaching, and business training from some of the industry's top minds. She competed professionally in both American Smooth & Rhythm styles, performed countless shows, and danced competitively with students at events all over the country. 

In 2014, Meghan relocated to Asheville, NC with her then-fiance Jake and opened Asheville City Dance. Together, they currently compete professionally in the American Smooth division, organize the Asheville Dance Classic, and are artistic directors of Dancing with the Local Stars.
