I received an Emmy Award in 1998 as the Music Director and Composer for CPTV airing of "Amistad Legacy".
Merly’s dance classes offer fun and variety with a range of different songs, music, styles, themes and activities specific to developing motor skills and maintaining student's interest. Over all, her programs are designed for participants to have fun while learning from different cultures, discovering and developing their own abilities within the art of movement.
I create art for the world. Dance is my free form expression. Its raw, and full of soul. I feel dancing in your dreams is a sign to open up. I realized throughout my years many people use dance to break out of their comfort zones. Or maybe you have a calling to dance. You never know. My dance is from my soul. I wake up in the morning and immediately begin dancing. It's a huge part of me. No matter what song comes on I get the urge to go off and it's hard to contain. I am the essence of dance and will continue to grow as such."
While receiving my Bachelors of Fine Arts, I had many classes with a variety of different mediums including watercolors, acrylics, even calligraphy.
I also have 7 years of professional experience working with children.
