Experience:With Helios Since 2011
Melanie graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point with a BA in Dance. While at UWSP she was involved in performance, choreography, production work, producing, and directing. Additionally, she presented her original research of the influence on Native American philosophies on early modern dance artists in Washington D.C. with The Council on Undergraduate Research. She is passionate about continuing her research and advocacy for movement and is excited to be a part of the Helios family that shares these ideals. In addition to her work at Helios, Melanie is also a professional dancer. She dances in a company called RE|Dance Group, a modern dance company that creates dance theatre works. In a collaborative process between directors and dancers, they develop evening-length works that episodically invites the audience to enter/observe another world to examine the many facets of personal and intimate human relationships.
