Meg Johnson (1983 – )

When she is teaching dance and her students get rowdy, Ms. Johnson stops class and has them reenact scenes from the TV show Northern Exposure. ''One preteen dance student named Alice has captured the essence of Maurice Minnifield in season three surprisingly well,'' says Ms Johnson, whose most recent piece of choreography featured dancers rolling their spines along black theater boxes until their backs bled. ''Everyone had a great time.''
