ABOUT Melissa (Login to Contact Melissa )

I’m looking for a dance partner to practice with, in classes and at social dances.


I’ve been dancing on and off for many years, but lately it’s more “off” than “on”, so I’m a little bit rusty.


I work in health research, love my small dogs, cheer on my young-adult daughter, visit family on the west coast as often as possible, try to rise above the current political climate, anxiously await the next season of Game of Thrones, regret my post-season mismanagement of my fantasy football team, and hope for an early Spring.
