Originally from San Francisco, CA, Melody started dancing at the age of 5. She began training in tap, and loved it so much that she would watch her recital videos over and over, and mimic the moves and sounds as best as she could on her parent's wooden coffee table. Her mom allowed her to take more styles of dance at her nearby studio where she would train for the next ten years in mainly ballet, lyrical, jazz and of course tap. Melody was a founding member of The Dance Company of San Francisco under the direction of her mentor, Chris Jacobsen. She also attended the School of the Arts High School, directed by Elvia Marta, training in classical and contemporary ballet, Afro-Hatian, modern jazz blues, choreography, improvisation, dance history, anatomy, and kinesiology. Melody moved to Los Angeles in the Fall of 2003 to explore new opportunities, taking with her, the strong work ethic, drive and discipline she developed at home. In 2005, she was fortunate enough to be a part of the very first season of FOX's hit television show,

Canada, Turks and Caicos of the Caribbean Islands, and Singapore as a teacher and guest performer.
