Kathleen Lee

Dreher High School: Dance Director

Meredith is a phenomenal artist; particularly patient and encouraging for mixed level dance classes, often found in a public school setting. My students were engaged, pushed to explore new partnerships and improvisational techniques and the dancers loved her choreography!

How would I describe our residency with Yuhas and Dancers? Extraordinary and truly inspiring! Not only does Meredith teach the students’ valuable concepts dance, she teaches them incredible lessons in life. She is a wonderful teacher to students of all levels and can teach a variety of styles.
