Voted "Best of Weddings" 2019, 2020 & 2021 on TheKnot.com
Melissa Rose is an independent dance instructor in Washington, DC. She teaches singles, couples and groups for weddings, social dances, parties and events.
Since 2009, Melissa has taught several styles of social Latin, ballroom and country dances, but her own dance journey began with one of the most difficult: Argentine Tango.
Despite its absence of standardized patterns and choreography, Argentine Tango is perhaps the most intricate of social dances. Heavily improvised, it places the highest importance on the connection between leader and follower through the embrace. This dynamic allows both partners to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally and easily as possible, and Melissa holds this same emphasis on connection throughout her lessons in all dance styles.
