Meet our owner, Melissa
Former Radio City Rockette, Melissa Thomas Edington fell in love with dance at age 4 when she took her first ballet class at Charlotte Braun Dance Studio in Parma Heights. Her love of dance grew as her training expanded to include tap, jazz, lyrical, and pointe. During high school, Melissa began training in jazz with the renowned Dee Hillier of Strongsville. In 2001, Melissa graduated summa cum laude from The University of Akron, earning her B.F.A. in dance. Upon graduation, Melissa began her professional dance career with Holland America Cruise Line. After dancing with HAL for over 2 years, Melissa moved to New York City to further pursue her professional dance career. Along with 8 years as a Rockette, some highlights of Melissa's career include touring Japan and North America with the Broadway musical "42nd Street", performing in a variety of musicals at Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, and touring with the Village People in "Solid Gold Dance Party Tour". Melissa recently returned to the Cleveland area and currently teaches dance and Zumba at many local studios and fitness facilities. She is also a member of the part time faculty at the University of Akron; teaching both jazz and tap!
