Lead Spotlight 2018: Melina is a 16 year old Senior at Stevenson School. Three years ago, with no knowledge of ballet, Melina decided she finally wanted to pursue dance after wanting to for years. She initially started taking private lessons with Laura Jeselnick, and then Tia Brown, who both believed strongly in Melina and brought her up to speed. Melina is thankful to all the teachers who have formed her in to the person she is today in the past three years, as she awaits college in the next year.

Melina has been on TDC’s Ballet Team and performing classical solos since her Sophomore year and is not only excited for the upcoming season but is ecstatic for Nutcracker rehearsals.

This is Melina’s second year in the Nutcracker, performing as the Arabian Lead, Snowflake, and Flower. Last year, she performed as a Reed Pipe Lead, Snowflake, and Flower and learned greatly from the experience. “I am so grateful to the teachers who have pushed me to where I am today. Three years ago, I would not have imagined applying to colleges as a double major pursuing dance. Without their encouragement, I would not have found my true passion.”

Outside of dance, Melina’s favorite subjects are AP Economics and AP Calculus. She desires a career as a trauma surgeon one day in Washington D.C. In her free time, she fosters puppies and kittens who are either ill or are in need of a place to stay until they can be placed in a forever home through the Animal Friends and Rescue Project. Melina lives in Pebble Beach with her father, mother, her two cats, Little Dude and Pebble, and two dogs, Zoe and Bentley. Her sister, Elaine, just left for college at San Francisco State this fall.
