MEGAN DRAGOO

 

Megan was born and raised in Versailles KY where she grew up studying dance and teaching dance at her mother’s studio, Jane’s School of Dance.  She held many titles and won numerous awards and scholarships during her training.  Megan is a professional and test certified member of Dance Masters of America and is a member of ohio chapter #16.

 

 She graduated in 1998 from Woodford County High School and moved straight to New York City to pursue a dancing career.  She danced with the Radio City Rockettes from the years 1998 – 2001 and from 2004 – 2007.  During that time she made many television appearances such as: The Today Show, Good Morning America, Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Presidential Inaugurations in both 2000 and 2004, Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Special, Wheel of Fortune, and The Grand Reopening Gala for Radio City Music Hall 2000.  As A Radio City Rockette she was also chosen for numerous choreography workshops for new routines for the Christmas Spectacular and Special Events. Megan worked with many professional choreographers, her favorite being Duke Ellington’s granddaughter Mercedes Ellington.

 

 

During the years away from the Radio City Rockettes, Megan was an original cast member of the Tony Award winning Broadway Musical Revival of 42nd Street from the years 2001 – 2004.   As a cast member of 42nd Street she also appeared on television shows such as: The Today Show, Good Morning America, Macys Thanksgiving Parade, The Late Night Show with David Letterman, The Rosie O’Donnell Show, and the 2001 Tony’s.

 

 

During her 2nd year with the show she was offered the role of Phyllis Dale and her older sister Joni also joined the cast as the lead role of Peggy.  So Megan and her sister, both trained at Jane’s School of Dance,  shared the Broadway stage together!

Megan is now the Co Director of the studio as well as the head choreographer for the Competition Team.
