Melissa is currently a fifth grader at Nathan Hale Elementary school in Schaumburg, IL. This is her 6th year as an Extensions company member. Melissa was put into dance by her mom at the age of four and thanks to the amazing faculty at Extensions Dance Company Melissa is improving each day and is still very passionate about dance. Her favorite styles are Ballet and Contemporary.
Despite Melissa’s busy dance schedule she finds the perfect balance between schoolwork and dance and still has time to do one of her favorite activities, shopping. Her favorite food is pasta and her favorite starbucks drink is a strawberry acai refresher. If Melissa could go back and give her younger self some dance advice it would be “don’t be nervous, just have fun”!
