Megan Taylor Morrison holds a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University, as well as a bachelor's in international affairs and French from the University of Puget Sound. For the last six years, Meg has worked with hundreds of clients across the globe as a certified life and business coach. Her work has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, The Huffington Post, and USA Today.
Meg is also an avid dancer who has studied local dance forms in 16 countries on six continents, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Guinea, and India. While she loves many different styles, her favorite dances will always be American vernacular jazz dances. Meg has taught lindy hop, blues, Charleston, collegiate shag, and other jazz-era dances at venues across the United States since 2006. She has also taught, performed, or competed at national events such as The Process, BluesShout, the American Lindy Hop Championships, and the International Lindy Hop Championships.
Meg debuted her talk, “Dance Travel: The Next Era of Dance Education,” in partnership with Melaina Spitzer at the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) Conference in 2018. Through lectures, roundtables, and articles, Meg continues to share about best practices for dance travel. She believes that, when done well, dance travel catalyzes impactful cross-cultural experiences and a deeper understanding of local culture.
In 2015, Meg founded a dance travel company that focused on cultural immersion through the arts. During her three-year tenure as CEO, she created and co-led dance trips to numerous countries, including a tango trip to Argentina with 4-time Emmy® Award-winning television host Mickela Mallozzi.
Meg continues to lead trips each year (see http://www.megtaylormorrison.com/da…adventures for details). She also serves as a dance travel consultant and has worked with organizations such as Joy of Motion Dance Center (Washington, DC) and the Maryland Dance Education Association (Towson, MD).
