Hi! I’m Melanie.

I’m a professional dancer, choreographer, instructor, and coach and I’ve been dancing since I could walk. The amount of joy dancing brings to my life is something I can’t even put into words and when I see my students find that kind of joy, it brings me the upmost happiness.
I love teaching people of all ages and levels. My favorite is being able to teach absolute beginners and show them that they CAN dance, because if you’ve got a heart beat, you’ve got rhythm! I’ve been fortunate to share the gift of dance with thousands of people around the world and work with companies such as Google, YouTube, Hulu, Yahoo, My Intent, UCLA, LA County Probation, Department of Child Family Services, TedX, and Sony.
I’m also the founder of a nonprofit called Fostering Dreams Project where we use dance and performing arts to transform the lives of children and teens in foster care.
In every class, course or workshop I teach, my goal is to help people find joy and freedom within their mind, body and soul and I’m ready to help you find yours and transform your life.

Step by step learning

Each video breaks down the fundamentals so you can learn at your own pace.

My personal goal is to make dance accessible for everyone, because it’s never too late to start.

 

Dancing is that perfect combination of physical activity, social interaction, and mental stimulation that brings so much joy to life.

Not only is dancing a great workout, but the physical and mental health benefits are life changing.

Dance will help

Enhance self-confidence

Reduces stress and depression

Promotes relaxation and better sleep

And the best part, it’s FUN!!!

Is a wonderful outlet for self-expression and creativity

Testimonials

This was my first time taking a flamenco class and it was so well taught and easy to follow. It was so much fun I want to go to Spain! Please do a part 2.

My kids have been having a hard time sitting still with online school, so for their P.E I had them take the 8 week hip hop course and it helped them focus on their school work and gave them a chance to move and try something new. They loved it!
Johnny
Melanie breaks down each movement so thoroughly I was able to learn the basics AND the choreography. Ready for more!
