Dancing Salsa professionally since 1999, Melissa Fern√°ndez grew up dancing and entertaining others.

She has traveled the world performing, instructing, and entertaining while continuing to expand her passion for salsa. Opportunities to perform in videos, television, and stage shows began as she appeared with artists such as Vivica Fox, the Four Tops, and Tito Puente Jr., to name a few.

Although performing thorughout the world and winning competitions are important aspects of Melissa's dance career, teaching others how to enjoy this dance ranks high on her list of professional desires.

Melissa and her dance partner, Luis Vazquez are currently in Rome, Italy where they teach Salsa Lessons every Wednesday.
