About Scout Shugart

Scout graduated in 2019 as a homeschooled student and Miller Street Dance Academy alumni. She danced for 14 years, 7 as a Miller Street dancer and 4 of those as an original Senior Performance Company member. Scout has been trained by numerous instructors including Jessica O’Keefe, Conor McKenzie, Randi Lee, and Denise Clarke. She attended several dance conventions throughout high school and had the pleasure of taking classes from Alex Wong, Curtis “TRIX” Pearson, Lauren Froderman, and Scott Fowler. The foundation of her training is ballet, but she is also trained in tap, jazz, contemporary, acrobatics, improv, modern, musical theater, and hip hop. Her freshman year she began teaching as an assistant teacher and instantly fell in love with it. She has a love for children and wants to make a difference in their lives through her love of dance.


Scout is attending Winthrop University on a partial academic scholarship and is majoring in graphic design. She hopes to one day have her own freelance graphic design and photography business during and after college. She plans to further her dance education by taking classes at Winthrop and trying out for their dance team next year. Scout is excited to be on staff at Miller Street and share her love of dance with you!
