Molly Mae MacGregor has lived, worked and danced in New York since moving from her hometown of Austin, TX in 2004. She received her BA in Theatre & Dance from UT Austin (2003) and her MA in Dance Education from NYU (2010), as well as the first annual Martha Hill Dance Fund Young Professionals Award (2004) and the Outstanding Achievement Award in Graduate Dance Education from NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development (2010).
Molly’s own work has been presented at the Brooklyn Arts Exchange and Judson Church, and in 2011 she acted as Movement Director for Brecht’s Life of Galileo, directed by Ian R. Crawford and presented at Fordham University & Lincoln Center. She also enjoys creating dances for the camera. Molly spent the last several years building a Dance/Creative Movement program for Pre-K-Fifth Grade students and teaching full-time at a public elementary school in New York. She is now teaching in various capacities throughout the city and enjoys working with a range of dancers who engage with dance and movement as anything from a profession, to a practice, to a playtime. She also acts as Program Assistant for the Young Dancemakers Company, which is run out of the Ethical Culture Fieldston School.
Molly is currently in her fifth season working with The Median Movement, the creative project of Doug Varone and Dancers' Alex Springer and Xan Burley. Most recently she’s been found dancing in a music video for Clay Wilson / Bangers and Ash, in the Noah Baumbach film Frances Ha and in the web series "Winners." She is delighted to join 92nd Street Y as a teaching artist.
