Morgan Goodfellow is a lifelong performer and advocate for the arts. She is a graduate of Chapman University’s prestigious College of Performing Arts with a BFA in Dance and she also holds a BA in English Literature. Her artistic and professional goals work to combine both her degrees in a career dedicated to arts innovation through performance, creation, and activism. Morgan is particularly interested in the narrative aspects of dance and how movement can be used to convey the human experience.
Though Morgan grew up in the convention dance circuit, she has also developed an intense passion for concert work as well as contact improvisation and site-specific dance. Her most notable mentors include Jennifer Backhaus of Backhaus Dance, Alice Klock and Florian Lochner of FLOCK, and Sara Milov of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Among Mo’s most notable achievements are performing in the Capezio ACE Awards in New York City and the Palm Desert Choreography Festival at the McCallum Theater.
Morgan also teaches jazz at Millennium Dance Complex Orange County. Her teaching focuses on technique and strengthening as well as performance quality and positivity. Morgan also teaches an experimental contemporary class that explores improvisation and floor work. When she is not working, Morgan enjoys volunteering her time with local organizations teaching dance for afterschool programs and theater camps.
