Melvin started dancing as a bboy/ freestyle head at only 8 years old, participating in battles and later joined Pinnacle Possibilities. He transitioned into choreography at age 14 at Chapkis Dance. Mentorship was a huge theme in Melvin’s growth as a young dancer. He now serves as a mentor for his younger dancers, believing in the power of pushing someone past their limits by believing in them regardless of whether or not they believe their own potential.
“Take a lot of classes. There are a lot of kids who want to be professional dancers, and the first thing I tell them is to take class. And while they’re learning, learn how to learn.“
Filmed and edited by Kris Ian and Nick Kim, Melvin is going off in this video! His choreography is one you don’t want to miss! Totally worth the watch.
