Post college, Morgan moved to Seattle where she quickly discovered Divine and has been found on the pole ever since.

Hometown?
I was born and raised in Bend, OR.

Why do you love Divine Movement?
Divine has helped me unlock new dimensions in myself, both with dance, and outside of dance. I never considered myelf a sexy person before dancing here. Divine is also where I met my first friends when I moved to Seattle.

What do you consider your teaching style?
“Fake it ’til you make it” is my go to motto. Though I will always give instructions, and make sure my students are safe, I prefer they give it a go and discover the movement within their body.

What music is on your “Divine” playlist right now?
I’ve been listening to my “Half Full” playlist a lot recently. It has a lot of songs that have hope and inspiration when things are rocky.

Favorite Food?
I’m a sucker for almost anything with cheese.

What is the farthest you have been from home?
Florida

When was the last time you cried?
Last week. This year has been a rough one, but it has made me accept my tears and let them flow when they need to.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Famous. I didn’t care how, dance, music, art, whatever.

Guilty pleasure?
I do this more than I’d like to admit, but staying in my PJ’s all day while I listen to music, or watch terrible TV.

Favorite article of clothing to dance in?
Slippery sweatpants, socks and an oversized ripped up T-shirt.

Favorite quote?
“What is hard today will one day be your warm-up…”
