My name is Melania

Grand Developpe Ballet in the open field

I've started ballet at 21 years old and I've practiced yoga for 14 years. I've also done other activities such as Pilates, contortionism, tap, artistic & rhythmic gymnastics, jazz, group latino dancing etc.

Starting dancing at an older age has not been easy for many different reasons but as I was not given this opportunity in my chidhood/teenage years, I was not prepared to completely give it up even if I had to train most of the days to be the best dancer I could be. I also always had a passion for flexibility & strength in general and this is why I fell in love with yoga and contortionism.

Everyday I still work really hard to improve these skills and believe in myself. When I started this jourmey, with no support, it is that that made me consistent, resilient & determined in my training. I want to share my knowledge, passion and advice to anyone who wants to improve their overall health and are looking to gain more flexibility, strength and balance in their own body & mind.

Inspirational Post

“Ballet is the closest thing to magic” and I definitely couldn’t agree more with this. I once came across this quote and I thought back to the moment when I started my dancing journey at the age of 21 and how it saved me.

I have overcome so many obstacles and had so many disappointments in my life and I needed something to make me dream again, to give me hope, energy and to begin to believe in myself especially when no one believed in me. Thanks to some of the wonderful teachers that I had and to my amazing partner who everyday supported me I was able to push myself as a dancer and to finally qualify as a ballet teacher and open my ballet academy.

Training in different schools, learning different styles and also taking classes in some other disciplines such as gymnastics, yoga, Pilates and contortionism, I came to the conclusion that, in my ballet academy, I would have preferred to teach ballet following my own method. So far it has been an amazing experience and I so much enjoy teaching my students and not only sharing my knowledge with them but also pushing them into becoming the best dancers they can be.
