Melina's Performance Company

Our purpose is to share our love of dance and entertain the community through performances given throughout the Northern VA and DC Metro areas.

The Pizzazz Performance Company is composed of dancers ranging in ages from 5-18 from Melina's Dance Company. These dancers study a multitude of classical dance disciplines and place an emphasis on community outreach.


As Melina's has grown, so have the opportunities for our dancers to perform at different events in our area.
