Melanie Useldinger has been teaching ballet for over 30 years. She pulls from her vast experience as a scholarship student at San Francisco Ballet, Banff School of Fine Arts, Pennsylvania Ballet, and New York City Ballet. She also draws on her professional experience at San Francisco Ballet, Dance Theater of Kansas, and San Jose Dance Theater. As a professional dancer she was required to master choreographic style and technique in modern dance, jazz, character, partnering, and variations.

Melanie especially loves inspiring students of all ages and abilities to learn to dance and experience great choreography to inspiring music.


Melanie also has the greater goal of training up highly skilled dancers who can share their gifts with the community at large and thus dance for greater purposes than just entertainment. We accept bookings for events, weddings, seminars, fundraisers and more.
