Stephany Moore, Latin Professional Dancer
Melanie Castillo has been one of my favorite dancers to work with in my entire dancing career. In the beginning of my professional solo career, I asked Mel to choreograph a competition piece for me, and with her choreo and guidance I made top 6 at the 2017 World Salsa Summit! This was a huge accomplishment for me since it was only my second year of competing at a Pro level. Especially at such a fierce competition like the WSS! I had Mel choreograph a few more choreos for me simply because I love her style, chore structure, and above all, how she teaches.
Melanie is so patient and transparent with each student she comes by and that is a true gift that she has. She makes you feel heard and your needs are her priority. From then to now, Mel and I have shared the stage all over the East coast and won trophies along the way, with her team of ladies, “Melanie Castillo y Su Candela”.
I treasure her teachings and apply them to my professional career today. Thank you, Mel, for all of your guidance and teachings throughout the years!
