Meet the Teacher

Meagan Nagy grew up in South Florida and always knew she was going to have a love for the arts.  After seeing her first Broadway show, CATS, all she wanted to do was get up on the stage.  That’s when she started taking voice and dance and lessons.  Tap, jazz, hip-hop, if you can name it, Meagan studied it!  At the age of 13, Meagan was cast in two professional dance groups:  “Pop-Starz” and “The Untouchables,” learning choreography from artists such as Wade Robinson, Chris Jones, and Glenn Douglas Packard, and opening for artists such as Hilary Duff, B2K, Nysnc’, and Pit Bull.

Recently, in South Florida, Meagan appeared in productions at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts including Diego & Drew Say I Do, Heathers:  The Musical, and Big Fish.  Previously, she performed in multiple productions at The David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts (formerly the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center), including The Rocky Horror Show, GODSPELL, and RESPECT! The Musical.  She has also performed as a Principal Singer for Norwegian Cruise Line, and spent several years at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Recognizing her passion for education and management, Meagan expanded her horizons, running a multi-disciplinary arts studio, currently offering private sessions throughout South Florida.  In addition, she currently serves as the theater arts faculty member at Ramblewood Middle School as well as at The Lovewell Institute.

"I am so excited to be teaching the students at Ramblewood Middle School.  Watching these young artists thrive up on the stage is what makes my job the best in the world.  The student's success in the arts is my top priority," - Meagan Nagy

Meagan holds her Bachelors Degree in Performing Arts, along with minors in Applied Dance and Dance Theatre from the University of Tampa.  While there, Meagan performed in several plays and musicals, playing such diverse roles as Nickie in Sweet Charity, Jason in Falsettos, Puck in A Mid Summer Night’s Dream, and Thea in Pippin.  She also had the opportunity to choreograph her own routines for the annual “Dance Happenings,” while also dancing in each Spring’s Dance Concert.
