Discover the joy of tap dancing in the comfort of your own home
My tap dance lessons will be tailored to you. Let me know what your goals are and what your motivation is for taking these dance lessons, and I will do my best to help you reach those goals. I have been extensively trained and have had several years of experience teaching many styles of dance - Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Scottish Highland, and Ballroom (including International and American styles). Here on TakeLessons, I am only teaching Tap dance online as it is easily taught within the home. I have worked in dance studios for several years and was able to teach a couple of beginning and intermediate social dance courses at Brigham Young University as a student instructor as well. I am passionate about all things dance and am excited to go on this journey with you.
About Megan S.

I have been taking dance classes since I was five years old, and I am now thirty-six. That's a long time. I got my first teaching gig at fourteen. I have studied ballet, tap, jazz, Scottish Highland, and ballroom dancing. I worked as a dance teacher at MacKinnon Dance Academy and Jill Johnson's Dance Studio in California teaching Scottish Highland, jazz, and ballet. I went on to work at Arthur Murray in Ventura, California, becoming a certified ballroom dance instructor. I moved to Utah where I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Wellness and a minor in Ballroom Dance. I also worked there as a student instructor teaching BYU beginning and intermediate level social dance classes. I graduated with my master's degree in Dance Movement Psychotherapy from Goldsmiths University in London UK. I love teaching dance because it is sharing what I am so passionate about with others. Wherever you are on your path, I hope you'll allow me to play a part in that journey.
