Julissa Cruz, Artistic Director of Latin Vintage Dance Company

Working with Melanie has been like opening the creative faucet and letting the water flow out. She possesses the ability of making movement feel as natural as walking, the way it’s meant to be. Our energies click so well, it’s the most effortless experience working with her.

Melanie Castillo is a true professional. She always came well prepared with combos that were both exciting and challenging. She truly loves to social dance, is super charismatic on stage, engages with her students, and has an exceptionally trained ear for musicality and rhythm. We love bringing her to D.C.
