Nationally recognized master teaching artist, Margot Greenlee facilitates training sessions that enhance the capacity of healthcare staff to integrate movement into their daily encounters with residents and patients.
Her approach is based on 20 years of experience in community arts engagement as both a solo artist and as a dancer with the Washington, D.C.-based Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. She has made dances with ranchers and farmers, rabbis and reverends, dogs and their people, toddlers and retirees, military officers and enlisted personnel. For the past five years she has brought her work to healthcare settings, dancing across age, health, and cultural spectrums.
She currently conducts dance programs with Georgetown University Hospital’s Studio G, D.C’s Veterans Administration Medical Center, and numerous assisted living residences, long-term-care facilities, and memory-care units across the greater D.C. region.
She received her formal dance training at The Ohio State University, completing an MFA in 1999. While in Ohio, she founded the multidisciplinary lab Total Theater, Inc., conducted dance residencies for the Ohio Arts Council’s Arts in Education program and also taught at Ohio Wesleyan University.
She is a recipient of the 2015 D.C. Commission for the Arts and Humanities’ Artist Fellowship. Her newest stage work, Blossom’s Rainbow, opens spring 2015.
