Melanie Burkhart grew up dancing at Encore Dance Center and has been teaching since 2007. She is a 2010 graduate of De Sales University, graduating with a BA in dance. In addition to teaching the preschool classes at Encore, Miss Melanie has been co-director of Encore’s ballet program since 2013. Miss Melanie is passionate about creating a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for her students. She continues to pursue her education and has currently passed her grade V Cecchetti ballet exam. Building confidence and providing a strong foundation for the next generation of dancers has been a blessing and dream come true.
What I love most about Encore is not only the exceptional dance foundation my daughter is receiving, but also the emphasis on building kind, confident, positive dancers and leaders. Alvina takes great care to ensure that her studio is a safe place for all dancers, and that the dancers care for and respect each other. Every teacher is professional and holds the dancer to high standards, while also encouraging fun and creativity. I also appreciate how studying dance has given my daughter strong core strength and flexibility, which is evident when she competes in other sports. We love being a part of the Encore family!
The Encore teachers helped me to become a dancer instead of just taking dance classes. Through dance, I have developed my performance skills and my confidence. The friendships I have made here will last a lifetime. Encore is not only a dance studio, it’s my 2nd home.
