Megan has trained and performed professionally as a performing apprentice with M.A.D.D. Rhythms, Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s BAM!, and CoCoDaCo Mezzo Company. Additionally, Megan has authored articles for Dance Panorama and the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science newsletter, and was featured in Dance Magazine (Sept. 2012) for initiating a tap course at Wayne State University.
