Mel is a professional dancer and has had extensive training in all the major dance disciplines. She started dancing as a little girl with ballet and progressing through to contemporary, jazz, street and (as you will see on the site) Irish dancing. We think there is no dance style that Mel cannot do and realise that this skill is as a result of hours and hours of training.
She is a female Billy Elliot as she says “the way I feel when I am dancing is like nothing else”.
We are so happy that we can bring you teachers who have this level of commitment to their chosen areas. As Mel points out, the job of a professional dancer is full of rejections and one has to be internally very strong to cope with that. Mel’s strength has clearly stood her in good stead as she has performed with the likes of Robbie Williams and the Osmond’s and worked extensively in the States.
In between performances Mel works as a dance teacher at prestigious schools in the London area and health clubs in the Croyden area.
- Mel’s tips
* Find a sport or exercise you enjoy, you will find it easier to stick to.
* Join a team or get an exercise partner, you wont want to let them down and it will help to keep you motivated.
