I am 15-year-old Melanie Mathurin with a passion for moving my body in creative ways to tell my story. I am a student of the St. Joseph’s Convent Secondary School and my favorite Subject is Theatre Arts. Dance is an art form that I have loved since I was 5 years old. My Passion started with Ballet for 2 years with the St. Lucia School of Ballet, then moved to Motion Studio for Three (3) years, which introduced me to contemporary, Hip-Hop, jazz, and afro Caribbean, and I also performed in a few theatrical productions, and I was only 11years old at the time. As soon as I entered high school, I became a member of the Silver Shadow Performing Arts Academy, which increased my knowledge, and Practical Skills in dance. As an active member of the academy and assistant Jr. Dance Captain of my level, I have participated in a number of performances, three (3) Major dance Recitals, two (2) Major Productions namely ‘Movements’ in 2018, and the Independence production ‘St. Lucia Story’ 2019. My experience includes over 10 performances of the Masquerade, National Independence Gospel Concert 2020, 3rd Place Winners in Digicel Dance Challenge 2020. I am hoping that my future in dance will be very successful as I have many projects in mind and dreams I would like to accomplish.
