Megan Glynn completed her MFA in dance at the University of California, Irvine in 2009. While at UCI, she worked with the UCI opera and theatre departments, as well as dance, choreographing numerous productions. While in her native San Francisco bay area, she served as a board member for Darkroom Productions, and with co-founder of Darkroom, Jon Tracy, she co-directed and choreographed an award-winning production of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus entitled Some Devil Whisper.
Glynn began her training at a young age, and then began performing with the Lisa Clark Dancers while enrolled in Solano College’s Actor Training Program. While working on her BA in dance at Chapman University, Glynn was a member of Pulse, a hip-hop company that performed in the greater Los Angeles area.
While working towards completion of her thesis at UCI, she worked directly under the tutelage of Dr. Donald McKayle. Her thesis concert, Addicted, was an original work premiere, which she wrote, directed and choreographed. She choreographed a world premiere play, Eve’s Rapture, written by Bryan Reynolds and directed by Robert Cohen that premiered at the Hayworth Theatre in Los Angeles. In April 2009, a new dance work she created entitled A Tearful View, was chosen to represent UCI at the California College Dance Invitational. Upon returning to the bay area after graduate school, she worked as the Jazz Dance Director at Westlake School for the Performing Arts in Daly City, and continued to teach and choreograph with the Lisa Clark Dancers.
Glynn’s former students have been on television shows such as Live to Dance, America’s Best Dance Crew, America’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance. Many have been featured in music videos, films and are touring internationally both performing and teaching.
She came to CMU in 2013 as a visiting professor and was hired as an Assistant Professor and Dance Director in the fall of 2014. Most recently, she has been a returning master teacher and guest choreographer at the Colorado Dance Education Organization and has presented work and master classes at the American College Dance Association regional conference.
