Maegen Gonska has been dancing since the age of 2, and is trained in classical ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical and contemporary. She is a regionally
and nationally recognized award winning dancer, competing since the age of seven. She was also a student at New York City's Broadway Dance
Center. At a young age she was noticed for her love of ballet and was encouraged to audition for professional ballet programs around the
country. At age thirteen she was accepted into the Nutmeg Ballet where she was under the tutelage of Eleanor D'Antuono of the
Joffrey Ballet, Victoria Mazzarelli of the Basel Ballet, Scott Thyberg of Dansereye Productions and Joan Kunsch of the Nutmeg Ballet.
After a successful debut, Maegen was awarded a scholarship for the Nutmeg Ballet and continued her education having a chance to
dance alongside Ethan Steifel, Gillian Murphy and Gennadi Savaliev of American Ballet Theater in a tribute to Eleanor D'Antuono's fifty
years in dance. Approaching college, Maegen began teaching in Connecticut and decided to pursue a history degree. After a brief
break to focus on school in 2010 she went back to her love for dance teaching in Virginia Beach. Her students today have performed in
Disney World, been accepted to ballet programs such as the Joffrey Ballet and compete regionally and nationally. She is thrilled to be
living in Gainesville, VA with her husband Brent and four cats and loves teaching at JSDA. This is Maegen's third year with the James
School of the Dance Arts.
