Dancer. Instructor. Choreographer.
Carla Spallarossa, Student
Two words come to mind: Gratitude and Excitement. My first class with her was a workshop she was teaching at the New York International Salsa Congress. I had already been dancing for a few years, but during that class, the way she explained a particular topic, caused a game changing moment in my dancing.
Ever since, I have always looked forward to continue learning from her. She is an excellent instructor with a unique style, great energy, and a keen eye for detail. She explains technique in a way that helps me understand musicality, body mechanics, and how to move organically. Her body movement drills and dance combinations are all with a purpose, which makes them challenging and interesting to work through.
I can see the progress in my dancing and how I am able to express myself with more confidence. I am very grateful for Melanie’s knowledge and guidance. I recommend her to anyone who wants to achieve a higher level in their expression and dancing.
