Owner & Executive Director, Betsy Moran
Betsy Moran is the Owner & Executive Director of DanceWorks LLC. She is the primary on-site representative of DanceWorks New York City at all auditions, rehearsals, events & performances, and directs both the NYC and Boston affiliates. Betsy was a Vice President at an international financial services company prior to taking on her expanded responsibilities within DanceWorks LLC. True to the values and mission of DanceWorks, Betsy is thankful that she has had an outlet for movement, athleticism and creativity outside of her finance job. She has been a dance company member of DanceWorks New York City since 2013, and has choreographed both regular season group and full cast finale productions.
Betsy graduated cum laude from Boston University, where she concentrated in finance and served as captain of the BU Dance Team. She grew up in New Jersey and was an avid competition dance team member having won multiple titles and overall awards. In her adolescence, she studied dance at New Jersey Ballet, Dance By Darlene, and Fabulous Feel Dance Academy. Additionally, Betsy has participated in several NYC-based dance programs including: a post-show tap challenge with Savion Glover, Broadway Dance Center's student showcase with choreography by Michelle Dorrance, Jim Cooney and Justin Boccitto, and danced alongside the Radio City Rockettes in multiple Rockette Summer Intensives.
Outside of dance, Betsy has completed her yoga teacher training with Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica and continuing education in prenatal yoga and yin yoga. She teaches private yoga sessions and corporate yoga in NYC, and founded Green Apple Corporate Wellness to bring yoga and wellness classes into the home, office and beyond. She partners with yoga instructors and wellness professionals to carry out these services. From the beaches in Punta Cana to NYC residences and board rooms, Betsy has had the privilege of teaching yoga in a variety of unique environments!
An avid traveler, athlete and philanthropist, Betsy has hiked to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, bicycled through the Lincoln Tunnel with Bike MS, taught dance and yoga to the girls of The Sacred Valley Project in Peru, and volunteers within her local community.
Betsy is proud to uphold the Core Values of DanceWorks and continue its success in the future.
