"Meg has skill and imagination and she is able to tell a story. She is certainly one of the very best accompanists I've had the pleasure to work with"

[Cynthia Harvey - Principal with American Ballet Theatre & Royal Ballet]

 

"What l love about Meg playing for class is her versatility.  From her fluid tones as the class begins through to the powerful dynamics in the allegro her music almost seems to carry the dancers"

[Liz Alpe - Royal Ballet & soloist with New Zealand Ballet]

 

"Meg has the ability to fill a room with warmth, inspiration and soul. She has the unique ability to enhance a dancers performance by becoming completely in sync with the emotional and physical happenings in the studio or stage. She is one in a million!"

[Rose Alice - American Ballet Theatre, director of International Arts Collective]

 

Meg Morley has been playing piano for ballet and contemporary dance classes since 2004 when she started working with The Australian Ballet School. From 2011-2017 she was a full-time pianist with English National Ballet School and is now a resident musician/composer for International Arts Collective and working extensively with various dance companies (including Rambert at Sadler's Wells, Matthew Bourne's Cinderella Company, Royal Ballet, English National Ballet). The years of playing for dance have vastly developed her skills as a musician - particularly as an improviser and as a collaborator, working closely with movement and music, dancers and choreographers.
