Head of Movement Studies Willingham Performing Arts Academy
Managing Director of Willingham Performing Arts Academy
Luke Miller was born and raised in Yadkin County. He graduated from North Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in Developmental and Educational Psychology with a minor in Theatre, where he worked as a costume, makeup, and hair assistant for the undergraduate productions.
While studying at NC State, he was a teacher and choreographer for the Academy for the Performing Arts in Apex, as well as the choreographer for his a cappella group, The Grains of Time. After graduating, he moved to New York City where he trained at Broadway Dance Center for two years.
Luke is very excited to return home to help the performing arts community grow and learn. He loves working in a collaborative environment where hard work and determination are not only valued, but craved. Luke writes, “The more work you put in, the more fun you should have. Performing on stage should truly feel like so much fun, it doesn’t even feel like work at all—and that’s what you get when working with the Willingham Performing Arts Academy alongside the Yadkin Arts Council.
