Angela Fleddermann Miller worked with choreographers including David Parsons, David Dorfman, and Patrick Corbin, in addition to choreographing and performing in her own work in NYC.  There, she was a member of the Amy Marshall Dance Company and Peter Pucci Plus Dancers.  She performed with Disney and the MUNY in St. Louis.  Choreography credits include Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and The Music Man at the Great Plains Theatre Festival, and L’Histoire du Soldat and A Chorus Line at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).  Other projects include performing with David Parker and the Bang Group at Summerstages in Concord, MA; Sara Hook Dances at UIUC and Harvard Dance Center; and with her own company, Trashcake Dance-Theatre, at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center and Chicago’s Links Hall.  In NYC, she studied on scholarship at Steps on Broadway, and the Joffrey Ballet, Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham, and Paul Taylor Schools.  Miller currently teaches an ever-evolving variety of dance forms and choreographs for the Dance Ensemble at Millikin University and serves as the Coordinator of Performance Programs for the School of Theatre and Dance.  Her choreography has been seen on Millikin's mainstage season in productions of Ruthless! The Musical, Little Women, Cinderella, Little Shop of Horrors, and The Phantom of the Opera.  She served as Director/Choreographer for Millikin's productions of Legally Blonde: The Musical and Peter Pan at the Kirkland Fine Arts Center.  She is regularly invited as a guest to share her creative teaching methods across the disciplines in seminars on dance pedagogy for graduate students and faculty at UIUC – her most recent one entitled, The Art of Teaching Dance: Creative Approaches to Teaching Non-Majors. During the summers, she enjoys working with young artists teaching musical theatre dance and jazz classes for UIUC's summer high school workhsop for actors and dancers, and directing/choreographing for the Decatur Park District's Best of Summer Stock program (Fame, Jr., Zombie Prom, Hairspray, Jr., Legally Blonde, Jr.).
