Meagan Stukel (better known to her BTM Family as Meagan Helman), former Ballet Mistress and Principal Dancer, danced with Ballet Theatre of Maryland for 11 years. It would be impossible to overstate the contribution to she brought to the company during her tenure. As a dancer she brought richness and artistry to so many memorable performances and as Ballet Mistress she served whole-heartedly, pouring so much of herself into the company. She retired from the stage in 2014 and in the Spring of 2015 she married her husband Mike. The two of them now live in Flordia, where Meagan has been pursuing her Masters Degree as well as working on Faculty at the Tallahassee Ballet. During Meagan's tenure with BTM, in addition to dancing she would also stage her own choreography. This year for our final performance of the Season: "Innovations 2017" she is returning to the company to create a new choreography. In between the rehearsals for setting her piece, she was able to answer some of our questions.
