40 Under 40: Megan Warnick


“I’ve always felt physical activity was important, but in quarantine, it became necessary for my mental health to exercise every day.”

The Pointe Academy • Highland • Director • Age 25

Megan Warnick has always been on point. She’s been a dancer for more than 20 years and been a teacher for nine. She’s performed around Europe, did a 10-month national tour, and has worked on music videos, commercials, and corporate work. She’s currently the director at The Pointe Academy, an award-winning dance studio in Highland.

CHILDHOOD DREAM “A professional dancer or a school teacher. I got the best of both worlds with teaching dance!”

DREAM MOMENT “Professional dance tour through Europe.”

ULTIMATE DREAM “To have a flourishing business full of hard working dancers and eventually have a professional company.”



QUARANTINE HIGHLIGHT “All the time I got to spend with my husband and daughter.”

QUARANTINE SNACK “G2G Protein Bar. Water is my No. 1, but I love Body Armor drinks, too.”

QUARANTINE INSPIRATION “I found the most inspiration while teaching. We switched to Zoom classes overnight, and I didn’t get to see dancers as often. So when I did, I loved seeing their commitment even when it wasn’t ideal space or flooring, or they had a bad connection. They pushed through and made the best of it.”

QUARANTINE OUTFIT “A comfy romper or leggings and a t-shirt.”

QUARANTINE TAKEAWAY “The sense of community. I love how people rallied together to support small local businesses.”
