Meet Melissa of The Dance Pointe!
I am originally from Greenwich, CT, left for 10 years, returned in 2004 from Germany.
Child(ren) and Age(s)?
Adrian Truelove (4), Nina Truelove (3)
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
Lived and danced in Germany and learned the language while over there.
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
The Dance Pointe “studio moms” and my faculty. They are the most supportive and creative group I know!
Favorite things to do with your kids?
Ferry ride to Island Beach, hikes in the Cognewaugh Trails, Byram Park Playgound!
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
Every two years I take my senior company, teen dancers overseas to perform in Germany. We donate all proceeds to charity. The program is modeled after a program I participated in as a student of Felicity Foote’s Greenwich Ballet Workshop.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
This community inherently understands and respects the arts as well as the importance of dance in a child’s development. It is because of the this foundation that The Dance Pointe has been able to grow so quickly and with community support.
