I am a professional performing artist, choreographer, teacher, and fitness trainer. I have worked both within the UK and internationally in tv, film, and theatre. I have been teaching dance for 8+ years, to all ages and abilities. More recently I have been exploring and experimenting between styles of movement, as well as incorporating my own found movement vocab of motionM through explorations within self-discoveries, and influences of interdisciplinary forms. I now use movement, conversation, and writing as tools for self care therapy sessions.

Melissa has tutored my extremely shy daughter who loves dance but is held back by her lack of confidence, for about 7 months.
Melissa has shown patience and understanding and has been able to further develop my daughters skills, as well as start to build her confidence.
Melissa is a great teacher and has been able to adapt her teachings to cater for the needs of the individual.
Melissa has taught my daughter many new skills and enabled her better enjoy her passion for dance.
Melissa has proven to be hardworking, professional, and caring and always kept me up to date on my daughters progression.
We hope to continue to have lessons with Melissa for the long term due to having had such a great experience so far.
Melissa is a great teacher. She really beeaks down all the movements and has really sought to understand what I wanted to get out of my lessons and what my goals are. I am constantly impressed by her knowledge and skill.
Melissa helpt us to prepare for our modern wedding dance. She adapted the choreography for us and coached us all the way.
Melissa is a great and very knowledgeable coach and high energy. We had a lot of fun preparing the dance. Highly recommended!
Not only is Melissa an incredible dancer but also a great teacher, the combination of which is rather hard to come across.
I’ve been greatly enjoying my lessons with her mostly for her expertise, individual approach and general enthusiasm and passion towards both dance and music.
I had my first trial lesson with Melissa and she is amazing at what she does. She made me feel comfortable , safe and she really patient . Overall she is a best teacher I’ve had so far and will be coming back for weekly sessions.
Melissa is very versatile she does all styles of dance. She does it all !! & she super sweet x
Highly recommend her
Melissa is a lovely dance teacher and inspiration. She makes sure that everyone’s questions are answered, goes through routines at a comfortable pace, by breaking down steps and is extremely encouraging. This allowed many people to discover their own creative style as dancers as they were in a comfortable environment to develop confidence in order to improve. The most inspiring part about Melissa as a tutor is her passion and drive in dance, and helping people to fall in love with dance the same way she has.
Because she is kind hearted and very generous, whenever I've been stuck on a dance move she takes the time to go through it properly so I understand whay to do, she hasn't got one bad bone in her body she's a breath of fresh air to be around with
Melissa is all rounded dancer whose passion and love for sharing with others creates such a beautiful energy. She is great teacher who has years of knowledge and experience. She is fun full of energy and such an inspiring, positive and uplifting person. Melissa classes will take you through a fun upbeat warm up with fitness, stretch and conditioning, led by hip hop/street dance/contemporary infused choreography to a selected song within her huge range of music selection, and sometimes she plays with dance/movement creative exercises to get our creative juices flowing.
