Meghan Spencer began performing at the age of 4 with CPD Dance in Lincoln, Nebraska. She continued her dance training, including being a member of the CPD Competitive Dance Company, until high school when other performance opportunities arose. Throughout high school Meghan filled her time with vocal and instrumental ensembles, an award winning show choir, and nationally recognized theatre productions.
In college, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Meghan performed with the Cornhusker Marching Band in front of an audience of 85,000 fans every Saturday in the fall. She also choreographed “Encore 4” and “Encore 5” at Lincoln Southwest High School. She graduated in the spring of 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Mass Communications, with majors in Advertising/PR & Psychology.
After college, performance opportunities became difficult to find. After moving to KC, a friend suggested KCAA as something fun to try in her free time. Meghan took her first Beginning Aerial class in February of 2016 and was instantly hooked. She joined the Training Company in January of 2017, and became an Apprentice in August of 2018. Meghan was so excited to be offered a contract with The Company in April of 2022.
Lyra has always been Meghan’s favorite apparatus to train, perform and teach. She also loves using her dance and acting background to bring a little something extra to her choreography both on the ground and in the air. Meghan specializes in creative storytelling and emotional performances.
