Megan loves traveling to teach workshops and master classes around the country; for availability and a list of workshop offerings, please contact her!
Megan currently coaches at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, and travels nationally to teach workshops and private lessons in handbalancing, solo and duo trapeze, innovation, act development, and more. Most recently she’s taught at the Atlanta Aerial Arts Festival at the Space in Atlanta, GA; Versatile Arts in Seattle, WA; the Southern Fried Circus Fest in Dallas, TX, Canopy Studio in Athens, GA, and NECCA in VT. She frequently travels with her partner, Lauren Feldman, with whom she coteaches duo trapeze; Lauren specializes in circus dramaturgy and is known for her unique workshops such as “Making Circus That Matters: Tools Beyond Technique” and “How Do I Start?: Ten Different Starting Points for Making an Act.”
Megan meets each student at their individual level of comfort and ability, teaching with patience and compassion. She is passionate about technique and rigor, but her classes are perhaps best known for their playfulness, sense of community, creativity, and joy.
Before moving to Philadelphia, Megan coached handbalancing, static trapeze, tumbling, flexibility, and more at New England Center for Circus Arts in group classes and private lessons. She was one of NECCA’s three Intensive program coaches (working with students in the first-year professional training program), and she also coached Pro-Track (second-year professional training) and Advanced Youth students. She also taught outreach classes to autistic teens and boys with ADHD, choreographed and directed a group act for NECCA’s winter show The Flying Nut, and coached professional program students in solo and group act creation.
Megan first began teaching flying trapeze in 2006 at the Espana-Streb Trapeze Academy in Brooklyn, NY. She taught creative, engaging circus classes to kids and adults at Brooklyn’s LAVA Studio from 2007 to 2011, drawing particularly on her personal solo handstands and trapeze practices, her training and experiences with composition and improvisation, and her study of yoga and Acroyoga. Megan has developed a strong knowledge of biomechanics and injury prevention that she passes on to her students, and has completed the Nimble Arts Foundation and Intermediate Trapeze Teacher Trainings.
