DANCE INSTRUCTOR & CHOREOGRAPHER
At a very young age Melanie knew that dance was her passion. She began dancing and tumbling at the age of three at local dance studios in the Merrimack Valley. Upon graduating High School, she went on to study Dance Performance and Pedagogy at Dean College, located in Franklin, MA, where she received her degree with high honors. At Dean, Melanie was accepted into The Ailey School (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater) in New York City, received the Gregory Hines Tap Dance Scholarship and was a member of the Dean Dance Company. After Dean, she studied music and dance at the Hartford Conservatory for Music and Dance in Hartford, CT. Melanie then became an instructor of many dance genres to children and adults of all ages and levels. With over 25 years of dance instruction, Melanie decided it was time for more than just dance. She has always had a love for many types of movement whether it be dance or simply jumping the ocean waves in the summertime! Over the last few years Melanie opened the doors into the fitness world. She found that adding these new styles of movement into her regular routine was not only helping her physical health, but also her mental health. Realizing just how important it is to stay physically, as well as mentally, active (especially as we get older), Melanie decided to become a group fitness instructor, as well as get her certifications in Zumba, PiYO, and Barre. After successfully completing all of her certifications, she went on to open RISE! Her goal is to offer as many styles of movement as possible to get everyone, young and old, moving and living the best quality of life possible! Melanie looks forward to continuing to educate and train, as well as create fun and innovative classes/workouts for all!
