Dance


Dancing is an ancient form of magic.

Melonlight is home to an eclectic vocabulary of movement styles, a love for fusion, and a deep appreciation for detail. This open minded approach toward movement breaks down boundaries between genres while respecting the technique and tradition that birthed each form. While Melonlight students will gain access to a variety of styles including modern, jazz, hip hop, post-modern, and contemporary, our specialty is partnership. We prepare students for social dancing, competition, performance in American Smooth and Rhythm, International Standard and Latin, and Nightclub style dances. If it's done in partnership, chances are you can learn it at the Melon. There is magic in dancing with a partner, a communication that words cannot imitate. Learn the intimate connection of two bodies in motion, the language of the dance floor, and the technique that gives rise to sensual and raw expression. You may attend group classes, private lessons, or parties with or without a partner. You can learn all of the following dances at the Melon:
