About Megill & Co

MeCo Dance is under the artistic direction of Beth Megill who is honored to have a cast of stellar dancers who happen to be the most loving and warm-hearted bunch in the galaxy. Megill strives to make choreography that honors the human experience including its beauty, strife, absurdity, and play. The dancers offer themselves to the work with a spirit of love and awe for this life and the gift of dancing together in a space that is safe, accepting, open, and supportive. Using Laban-based movement theory and corresponding notation, the literate company works emphasize craft and composition attends and honors the embodied experience of what it means to be human and live in this dancing human body!
