About Us

When is a dance school more than just a dance school? 


When it becomes a place where imagination takes center stage, and instilling self-confidence, poise,

and respect for self and others is the ultimate goal.  

At Melina‚Äôs Dancing Garden we are singularly focused on  dance education. 

We believe that true excellence is achieved when superior classical training is coupled with  joy of movement in
a manner that is both age appropriate, and developmentally sound.  

We believe that all children and teens can benefit from formal dance training through improved muscle tone, flexibility, and
coordination; and that their minds and hearts are greatly enhanced by the magic
that is created when  imaginations run wild!  



From our youngest 2 year old Rosebuds, all the way up through our oldest, advanced dancers,  our students are taught carefully planned and time proven curriculum that is specifically designed to teach solid technique fundamentals in a fun, enchanting environment. 


Our instructors are all certified to teach ballet, tap and jazz by Dance Masters of America and are invested in sharing their love of the art and nurturing each student as a whole.


We don't believe in hiding our teachers and dancers behind closed doors either!  At Melina's our unique, open classrooms allow you to watch your child's entire class and be a part of their learning experience!


Come see the difference for yourself, the gates to our garden are always open!
