Melody has been involved with some type of dance since the age of 3 when she went to her first Ballet class. That is all it took, she was hooked. She was a competitive dancer for 15 years and traveled across the country to participate in Tap, Ballet, Jazz, and Modern Dance Competitions. Melody still continues to take Tap, Hip Hop, and Latin Dance classes herself from professional dancers in the Chicago, Il area, for she is always interested in improving her skills and learning new things.
While Dance is a large part of Melody’s life, she also is dedicated to the Martial Art of Tae Kwon Do and currently holds a Third Degree Black Belt.
One year ago Melody, in her search of finding a fun and energetic workout class, took Zumba at her local gym. Little did she realize what a life changing move that would be. Not only did she find the perfect way to get a cardio and toning workout, she also discovered a new passion. You can find Melody teaching Zumba at a number of dance and fitness centers throughout Chicago. Melody also conducts short-term Zumba sessions (6-8 weeks) at local Churches and Community Centers.
