Megan McKown-Miller

by Michael Cooper


Megan McKown-Miller, former Tulsa Ballet dancer and artistic director/choreographer for Song of the Swimming Sun, an upcoming one-night contemporary dance performance exploring the concepts of clandestine love and parallel universes. When I caught up with McKown-Miller at the Bai Lans dance studio in Midtown, she and her dancers were taking their rehearsal time seriously, but with a sense of fun and enjoyment of their craft.

Featuring original music by Nathan Brant and Sharla Pember with original additional choreography by Ma Cong and art installations by Erin Turner, Geoffry Hicks, and Mark Fredric, Song of the Swimming Sun debuts August 21st at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Liddy Doenges Theater at 7:30pm.

True Tulsa is a weekly project that highlights the people and places that make our city great.
