Morgan Mitchell

Morgan began her dance education at a competitive dance studio in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she studied multiple styles of dance. When Morgan moved to Nevada she began to focus primarily on her ballet training. She was fortunate to study with respected teachers in the Las Vegas area, including Tara Foy, Inez Mourning and Ella Gourkova. She was also awarded scholarships to multiple ballet summer intensives and had many performance opportunities as part of Nevada Ballet’s Youth Company and as a student at the Las Vegas Academy of Arts. When Morgan was given the opportunity to create works for her peers, she realized her skills as a choreographer and teacher. She studied Dance in college at Brigham Young University and later attended a teacher training at world-renowned Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet under the direction of Marcia Dale Weary. Most recently Morgan became certified to teach Progressing Ballet Technique created by Marie Walton-Mahon.

Morgan’s strong attention to detail and emphasis on proper alignment gives dancers the tools to succeed not only in her ballet classes but in all styles of dance. Morgan is a talented choreographer and dedicated teacher. Her passion and love for Ballet is contagious. With a positive, energetic attitude she challenges students, enabling them to gain confidence through consistent, hard work.
