GET TO KNOW ME!
Megan Holeman, born in Lubbock, Texas, began training in dance at the age of three. Growing up, Megan attended dance competitions and conventions, as well as learning to play the piano and violin. At the age of fourteen, Megan developed a love for choreographing and teaching dance when she was tasked with leading a hip-hop class and setting a piece on thirty middle-schoolers.
After graduating Valedictorian of her senior class, Megan moved to New York City to attend The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) Dance Theatre Conservatory, where she began training in vocal performance and acting. She graduated with her Professional Certificate in 2021. That same year, Megan moved to Los Angeles to attend AMDA's College of Performing Arts, where she also studied filmmaking, songwriting, and music production. In 2022, Megan graduated with her BFA in Performing Arts, with a concentration in Dance Theatre. Megan reflects on her time at AMDA and is extremely grateful for the opportunity to train on both coasts and work with a number of incredible artists: Stephanie Landwehr, Justine Menter, Lyrik Cruz, Cheryl Baxter, Hector Guerrero, Genevieve Carson, Lars Rosager, Ramon Galindo, and more.
Megan is currently working with Paloma Garcia-Lee within a private mentorship program, working to expand her artistry through the digest and exploration of various Broadway repertoire. Megan is also training within Lume's Ignite and Light training programs, directed by Monika Felice Smith and MaryAnn Chavez, in which Megan is able to train with a variety of guest choreographers and develop more skills as a choreographer and creative artist. Megan is also a member of Lume Dance Collective (contemporary-fusion dance company based in Los Angeles), in which she takes part in monthly visual projects. Megan is trained in a variety of styles: ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary/lyrical, modern, hip-hop, musical theatre, heels, ballroom, and acrobatics. Megan is a firm believer that movement- in any form -is the strongest form of expression and communication. She has discovered a way to express and communicate in her most authentic way and is looking forward to sharing that with the world in a professional manner. She is eager to do so on stage or in front of a camera- dancing backup to Dua Lipa or Taylor Swift, for Ryan Heffington on his next music video, or in the 2025 revival of A Chorus Line. Wherever the movement takes her, she will be there with an open heart and mind, ready to soak up and be inspired by other's artistry and (together) create magic that this world cannot ignore.
When Megan isn't training or auditioning, you can find her playing the guitar or piano, teaching a Pure Barre fitness class, grabbing a coffee from Priscilla's in Burbank, or hanging out with her closest pals.
