About the Author: Melissa
Melissa has been on the go all her life: as a fidgeter, athlete, dancer and trainer. Originally from Massachusetts, Melissa – a professional choreographer – founded Perceptions Contemporary Dance Company in 2007 after graduating from Dean College School of Dance. Melissa made the trek over to New York City in 2009 where she immediately began studying with Studio Anya. She has since explored all things Anya as a student and a teacher, an artist and liason. Her studies of Curriculum AUM branched so deep into her soul that she began incorporating Curriculum AUM into her choreography. Through this incorporation blossomed a collaborative journey between Perceptions Dance and Studio Anya called Project AUM: a method of teaching and exploring Curriculum AUM through dance and the arts.
