After graduating from UC Berkeley in 2012, Megan was hired as the Office Manager for TDPS. She is now Program Associate, and her current duties include: course scheduling, enrollment, event coordination, and work-study supervision. She also teaches master classes on contact improvisation, dynamic partnering, creative movement, and release technique principles for the department.
In addition to working for TDPS, Megan is a dancer, choreographer, performer, singer-songwriter, filmmaker, teacher, and administrator of Chinese and Irish descent, creating dance art in the SF Bay Area, situated on the unceded lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone. With an affinity for dynamic places and partners, her creations through Megan Lowe Dances tackle unusual physical situations and invent compelling solutions, opening up the imagination to what is possible. MLD’s recent works have been presented at de Young Museum, ODC, Legion of Honor Museum, Joe Goode Annex, and as part of Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center’s 24th and 25th United States of Asian America Festivals. Megan has performed with Flyaway Productions, Lenora Lee Dance, Dance Brigade, Scott Wells & Dancers, Lizz Roman & Dancers, Epiphany Productions, and more. She teaches for Joe Goode Performance Group, Bandaloop, Flyaway, and for contact improvisation gatherings. Megan’s artistic process thrives off of collaboration, prioritizing creating relationships of respect, generosity, and gratitude. This culture of magnanimity is infused in the dance classes Megan teaches all over the Bay Area, for organizations, schools, universities, and dance festivals, serving movers of all different ages, experience levels, body types, races, cultures, and socio-economic status—building community, connection, and understanding. In addition to helping you out with your TDPS needs, if you have questions about dance opportunities after college, she can help you out.
Megan is incredibly grateful to be working for TDPS, which fosters the perfect environment for pursuing a career in the arts.
