About Mel


Mel, Malanay, Melania.

Something not many people know:

I was named after a guy but I am not a guy.

Serious stuff, what do you actually do in DM:

I am a DM instructor and fun finder.

Why DM :

I appreciate the fact that everyone at DM has a shared passion for mambo. We have a lot of fun grooving and we never shy away from a challenge.

Outside class:

I work full time as a mathematics lecturer. When I’m not teaching or dancing I enjoy running, watching movies, playing the flamenco guitar, pampering myself and hanging out with my cat.
