Meghan Karins

Meghan Karins is a former student of Bataille Academie, and dance is truly her passion. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality and a minor in Dance from Western Illinois University.  Meghan received an award for choreography at the American College Dance Festival while a member of Illinois State’s Dance Theater.  She continues to pursue her love of dance by teaching in the classroom and choreographing for community theater programs.  She has been a part of community theater for 11 years with her choreography featured in shows including Beauty and the Beast, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and The Sound of Music.  Meghan founded the Bataille Academie Dazzlers in 2010 with the help of Dee Dee Gallagher-Johnson. The Dazzlers offers dancers an opportunity to participate on a precision drill team, and perform at competitions and other local performances.  When not working in the dancing world, Meghan acts as a Sales Manager for Marriott International. She is very proud to be part of the Bataille Academie staff, educating and encouraging children in their love of dance.
