Melissa is a Texas native who grew up in the DFW area. She began taking dance classes at age 5 and started teaching dance when she was just 15 years old. Melissa has a B.F.A. in Dance from the University of North Texas.

She has worked at various schools and studios all across North Texas specializing in technique workshops.
