Michele Bickley fell in love with dance as a child and has dedicated her life to promoting self and community awareness, health, and joy through the art of dance and yoga. Michele graduated from Baltimore School for the Arts with a Dance Major and earned her BFA in Dance from Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, TX.
In 2003, Michele co-founded / directed Muv Dance and Yoga, a Los Angeles based arts organization that provided holistic learning experiences that integrated physical, intellectual, and social expression while restoring balance to the school and work day. From 2003 - 2011, the Muv program was implemented in hundreds of LA schools. She is an innovative educator with over twenty years of professional teaching and performing experience, has choreographed for film & TV, and leads workshops across the country.
Michele, her husband and two children, recently moved from Southern California to beautiful Ellicott City. Michele is thrilled to join the Dance Connections Team and to create a space where students can shine through dance!
