Meet the Staff
Mrs. Melissa Seiler: Owner and Instructor







Mrs. Melissa graduated in May 2005 from Southeast Missouri State
University  with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre and Dance
and a Minor in Music.

Through her University studies she has worked with several world
renowned dance companies including: The Miami City Ballet, Paul
Taylor Dance Company, and Alvin Alley American Dance Theatre. She
has trained with the Florida Association of Dance during a summer
internship. She has been evaluated and is now a member of the
Southern Association of Dance Masters.

All of this began from taking dance at Patti Simmons School of Dance
where she was taught by Patti Simmons-Marriott for 18 years. During
this time, she traveled with the School's Dance Team to many Dance
Conventions and Competitions. She started assisting Patti when she
was 13 years old, and this training has given her the self confidence and
ability to purchase and direct the Dance School as well as the
commitment of continuing her education to better train your child.

She and her husband Rodney married on New Years Day 2005.  Mrs.
Melissa and Mr. Rodney are the proud parents of their first child, a son
named David Reid whom they are calling Reid. Reid will be 3 years old in a couple of
months!
Mrs. Melissa is also the youth leader at her church.
