I have gone to ballet conservatories, been with dance companies, went to a University where I studied fine arts of Dance, and have gotten many opportunities to work alongside with choreographers such as Scott and Brian Nicholson (Arianna Grande choreographers). Johanna Sopakie (Cirques Soleil), Kim Wolfe, Barry Youngblood, etc. I enjoy spreading the knowledge and joy I have of Dance. I want this to be exciting and fun, as well as, a safe learning environment. I love to teach class but also work closely in rehabbing if a dancer is trying to get back into dancing and exercises to help strengthen muscle groups for the body to be able to do whatever it is that is your goal.

About Melanie
Hello my name is Melanie!! I studied Dance, Kinesiology, and Business at a University, where I graduated in 2018. The past couple of years I have been teaching dance, Spanish, and strength and conditioning classes. I’ve gotten to work with all types of people and have loved the progress each individual has made from them. The most exciting things about all classes I teach is that it’s always a fun process and never do I want you to feel that it’s impossible, I make sure you leave confident because you understand and have progressed already in just ONE class towards your goals and needs. I look forward to helping you succeed and to work with you!

My daughter had a birthday party and she told me all she wanted to do was have her friends come over and have someone teach them dance, and an overall fun dance party at the end! So we went on here and reached out to Melanie and see how she felt about it, she was all in and excited. She came that day and they all had so much fun, and then every so often when the girls come for sleepovers, we contact Melanie to come teach them classes and even do make-up with the girls as she is so skilled at many things! Can't wait to have her over again!

I loved the way Melanie taught and listened to my mother. I set her up for strength and conditioning classes simply to keep her moving more as she is older. She would give my mother exercises for her body to help her stay strong and then again my mother would look forward to her classes each week. Very motivating and inspiring she is!

Melanie is the best Spanish Teacher I have ever had. I had taken classes from others for many years and still struggled with the language. I wanted to hold a little more conversation in Spanish and advance to the levels like I did in her classes. Such a happy and fun instructor! Thank you Señora Melanie.

You'll either really love or dislike WAACKING.
WAACKING is not just flailing arms around.
(although Blogilates arm workout will be recommended for sure)

WAACKING is versatile and can easily blend with contemporary, hip hop, breakdancing.

I will use my 5 top strengths (and admiration for K-Pop dancers) :

Restorative
Empathy
Developer
Connectedness
Ideation

About Heyinn
I am probably one of the bubbliest people you'll ever meet.

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering. My desire to serve and promote progress shines through the most when there's a learning opportunity for both parties.

Fun fact: my mom is a traditional Korean instrumentalist (plus Korean fan dance)
She influenced me in creativity.

Korean language students can quickly access authentic learning materials. The pronunciation will be enhanced through my own technique called "scatting sound method". The method was developed from my own observation of the language and my love for teaching my friends Korean.

Dance is liberating if you can master a few movements to own for yourself. When I struggled with eating disorder, dance helped me cope with anxiety. Throughout college, I independently studied
a particular dance called waacking and k-pop. As a result, I have accumulated know-hows through experiment.

As a professional engineer, my goal is to help realize what it means to be efficient learner. If it takes a tweak in system, pedagogy, or communication to help you unlock for yourself a Korean tongue or a freestyle dance soul, I am here to hear your story and cooperate.
