Her dance background includes ballroom, Latin, folk, belly dance, WCS and Argentine Tango. Her ballroom dance major along with her interdisciplinary teaching experience and studies in music, martial arts and speech pathology contribute to the versatility of her dancing and teaching style.

Note: The Binghamton dance community loves welcoming new dancers and offers many opportunities to get started with your WCS. However, these workshops are designed for dancers who have some experience with the dance. In order to allow more seasoned dancers to get the most out of these workshops, please attend only if you’ve already taken beginner WCS swing lessons and are comfortable with 6 and 8-count patterns.

Melissa’s Ballroom School of Dance wishes to invite you to a fun evening of dance on Friday Aug 31st!
We will be having a community guest party at the Warren Center Community Building (103 School Rd Warren Center Pa)! Invite your friends! Let’s come together and grow our community of dancers!
A Merengue Mixer will start at 7pm and will be something everyone can enjoy! The dance party will follow at approximately 7:45 and go until 10pm. My hope is that more people are introduced to partnership dancing, new connections are made, my students and their friends are introduced to the larger community of dancers/venues/classes, and everyone benefits!
Great company, plenty of food and drink, fresh and current music, a huge dance floor, along with other special details lined up for your entertainment and pleasure... This is sure to be a memorable evening you don't want to miss!
There is no charge for this event. A dish to pass (appetizers/snacks) is welcome, however! Also, you can carry in a beverage if you desire to do so.
You don't have to rsvp to participate, but it is helpful to have a general idea ahead of time!
Hope to see you on the 31st!
Ballroom Dance Party at Melissa's Studio, 107 Main St, Wyalusing, PA 18853, USA. Still starts at 7:00 - 8:30. Group lessons at 7:00.
