Mandy Cregan has been dancing since the age of four. She attended James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA where she earned a B.A. in Dance. Upon completion of her B.A. she spent a year in London dancing at the Laban Centre where she earned a Professional Diploma in Dance Studies. After returning from London she moved to San Francisco where she quickly found sanctuary in the dance classes of Lizz Roman and became a long time dancer and collaborator with her company, Lizz Roman & Dancers. It was with Roman that she began to develop the architectural and partnering skill-set that is so important to the work that POV Dance creates. It was also while dancing with Roman that she met and began her long-time collaboration with fellow POV Dance founder, Noel Plemmons. Mandy is also a mother of two incredible children, Oskar and Lila. She owns a Pilates studio, bodymechanics, in Southeast Portland, and enjoys helping people reconnect to their own physicality when she’s not dancing.
