Morgan Shamy

Morgan Shamy has been immersed in the arts since the young age of four. She trained in ballet under Julie Orlob, as well as New York City Ballet’s principal dancers, Maria Calegari and Bart Cook. Morgan performed with a professional ballet company for over a decade and has danced on prestigious stages like Carnegie Hall, where she soloed and performed various title roles. In her fifteen years as a ballet teacher, she has mentored thousands of girls

Morgan discovered writing when her three-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. That experience instilled the need to share art and magic with children through words on the page. Her first piece of writing won an online HarperCollins story contest, where her work rocketed above 30,000 other projects in under two weeks. Along with writing, Morgan is also an accomplished concert pianist. She was the first girl in Utah to receive the 75 pt. Gold Cup in the Utah Federation of Music in piano solo/concerto competition. Morgan currently resides with her X-Games gold medalist husband and four young children in the cold mountains of Alaska. Find her on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter @MorganShamy, or her website
