MEGAN TATUM

Dance Mentor

Megan Tatum is a musical theatre performer/choreographer and feels absolutely blessed to join the Passion team.  She grew up in Chester, Virginia training in all styles of dance at Appomattox Regional Governor’s School, Richmond Ballet, and Chesterfield School of Ballet under the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus.  Megan is a kid at heart and loves working and dancing with children of all ages and abilities.  She is a graduate of the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in Kinesiology and Health Sciences Pre-Physical Therapy and a B.A. in Integration of Dance, Music, and Theatre Performance.  Megan has taught and choreographed all over Virginia at Broadway Dance Arts, Virginia Regional Ballet, SPARC, Dogwood Dell, Swift Creek Mill, and Henrico High School Center for the Arts to name a few.  Megan most recently worked with Virginia Repertory Theatre on A Christmas Story (Dance Captain/Featured Ensemble) and Junie B. Jones the Musical (Associate Choreographer/May/Mommy/Grace).  She lives in New York City, when not traveling to teach and perform, and assists physical therapists with Broadway and ballet companies such as New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Wicked, and Matilda.

Megan believes in not just teaching students to dance and perform but also to understand their body and how it moves so that they can have long and active lives enjoying whatever their passion may be.  She has performed professionally all over the country with Midtown Arts Center (Mary Poppins), Compass Rose Theater (Brigadoon), Alluvion Stage Company (Beauty and the Beast), Riverside Dinner Theatre (West Side Story), Virginia Musical Theatre (Little Mermaid, Legally Blonde, Children of Eden, Mame), and at Busch Gardens (Christmas Town).  Megan is so excited to share her joy for life and dance with the people she is able to mentor at Passion Academy.
