About this event:
The Level 2 dancer has an understanding of basic ballet steps, body positions, and port de bras. This dancer can follow basic petit and grande allegro combinations and is now ready to be introduced to more advanced ballet technique. At this level, more complicated steps are broken down into component parts and combinations are reviewed as much as necessary. This is a 6 week course.

Shortly after arriving in England (her heritage land), she began working with a small touring company named Vienna Festival Ballet. After some time and experience Meghan began touring alternately with English National Ballet. She toured internationally with both companies performing in ballets such as Swan Lake, Giselle, Romeo & Juliet and the ever-loved Nutcracker. After five years overseas, Meghan returned to Toronto to focus on a career in teaching. Over the last 15 years she has taught at various schools and studios including Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, The Toronto District School Board, Dance Teq, MBS, Dance Pac,Tha Spot, Ryerson, and Swansea School of Dance.
