Meet the Teacher

We are excited to welcome to our faculty, Lily Oglesby! She will be teaching all of our Modern this year, but as you will read below she has a very diverse background! Please join us in giving a warm welcome to Miss. Lily!


Lily has studied dance and theater for over 30 years. She studied
ballet, modern and jazz intensively at Milwaukee Ballet School,
Pacific Northwest Ballet School and at Wesleyan University,
where she also branched out into many other dance forms (including
West African, Latin and hip hop). As well, she studied theater and
directing at Wesleyan and at The American Conservatory Theater in San
Francisco and in London at The Central School of Speech and Drama. She has
taught, choreographed, directed and performed dance and theater throughout
the San Francisco Bay Area and in Reading, PA. and abroad in London, Ecuador
and Brazil. In 2012, she co-produced, co-wrote and choreographed an original
musical, “Photosynthesis: Living Sunlight,” for Youth In Arts. She presently
resides in Reading, PA. with her husband and 4-year old son. Most recently she
choreographed and performed in Berks Opera’s production of “Faust” with James
Valenti at The Miller Center and in Reading Theater Project’s “The Importance of
Being Ernest.” In addition to the several dance and yoga classes that she
teaches weekly, she performs regularly throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
Lily is a MFA candidate in Dance at Wilson College.
