Our TAGteach™ certified staff consists of highly regarded professional dancers and performing artists, each with exceptional teaching experience. Our teachers cultivate enthusiasm in our students through their own joy in dance and out of their sincere love for children (we TAG, we don’t nag!).
Melissa has been dancing since she was 2 years old and studied tap, jazz and ballet with Tina & Ron LaFlam in Gloucester, MA. Her teaching career began with the LaFlam's as well, as Melissa was a favorite teacher in their school for 6 years.
As a student Melissa was the recipient of the New England Grand Champion award and also won multiple scholarships from Dance Masters of America, including the coveted Three-Way Overall scholarship.
A senior teacher A Dancer’s Dream, Melissa is admired for her ability to motivate her dancers to be their best and to accomplish more than they ever thought they could, as is evidenced by their award winning success in her care. Melissa's classes are highly challenging and she is as well loved as she is respected by her many adoring dancers.[Top]
