Michelle Pugh

Outreach Instructor

Born in Lawrence, Kansas, Michelle grew up with a natural ability to never sit still. After spending her time in gymnastics and volleyball, she found her voice in dance. While receiving a BA from the University of Kansas dance department, Michelle had an exact moment that brought theater together with dance and became inspired to perform professionally. She then received additional training at the Ailey School. After graduating, Michelle has performed with numerous companies in the Kansas City and Denver metro area. She has performed with 3rd Law Dance Theater since 2009. Her favorite opportunities are those that allow her to use improvisation, leave her soul on the floor, and make the audience laugh with crazy momentum. Michelle teaches Be Beautiful Be Yourself, master classes with 3rd Law Dance Theater, improvisation master classes, preschool dance, yoga, and meditation.
