Home / Staff / Meghan Sissom, Creative Dance for Toddlers Instructor



Meghan has a background in Psychology and Sociology and holds a Masters in Education with a focus on movement and dance for children with learning disabilities. She studied Integrated Dance at the University of Washington. She has worked with children for almost 20 years specializing at times with at-risk children and teens on the autism spectrum. Bringing dance into her work creates a joyful place to teach and learn.

Meghan knew she wanted to teach dance to children when she moved out to Seattle from Colorado. She started a class on her own which inspired ideas and ways to teach children. In her exploration of forming a class she discovered the Creative Dance Center and Anne Green Gilbert who had been teaching dance to children and all ages for 25 years and had written books on the subject. Feeling grateful Anne was so close by Meghan began observing and mentoring at the Creative Dance Center and then began teaching there in 2005. In Seattle, she also taught in schools, for the Friendship Circle, the Boys and Girls Club, Aspiring Youth and privately. It has been a lovely journey meeting so many children and families who come ready to dance and engage with the joy of learning through movement.

“Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn’t music.” William Stafford
