Disney’s High School Musical on Stage! centers on the blossoming relationship between Troy, a high school jock, and Gabriella, the new smart girl at school. They meet on a family vacation and become attracted to each other while singing in a karaoke competition. Rediscovering each other at school, their relationship and their surprise decision to audition together for the school show are thwarted by the school’s current leading lady, Sharpay, and Troy and Gabriella’s well-meaning friends.

Meet Your Teacher – Lesley Anne Mealor

Originally from Marietta, GA, I grew up dancing under the instruction of my mother, Brenda Mealor, at The Dancers Studio. I then went on to study at Oklahoma City University and earned a degree in Dance Performance. My career has taken me around the world with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and across North America with tours of “Sweet Charity” and “The Music Man”. I am currently based in New York City and eager for the next opportunity to present itself.

In addition to performing, I am inspired by teaching young dancers across the country that what they bring to the table is enough, and telling the story is more important than any trick you can do. Adjudicating dance competitions allows me to stay connected to the studio industry while still pursuing my career as a performer. If I’m not in a show, you can usually find me behind the judge’s table.
