Melissa is 8 years old and has entered the third grade at Nathan Hale elementary school in Schaumburg, IL. This is now her fourth year at Extensions Dance and second year as a Too’s company member. She enjoys training in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and has found a new passion in Contemporary.
When Melissa is not training at the studio, she is still dancing away at home and enjoys creating her own routines (sometimes pretending to be Lizzie MacKenzie). She also enjoys drawing, making slime and watching YouTube videos. Melissa is very thankful for Lizzie MacKenzie’s dedication and instruction. Lizzie encourages her to be confident and to always always hold her head up high. Thank you to all of the instructors that play a roll in making her a stronger and better dancer. We are very grateful to be part of such an elite dance company.
