Meet Tatiana Melendez! We’ve known Tatiana for awhile now and it has been so amazing watching her career as a dancer grow. When she came to visit us at the store it was the perfect time to steal her away and do a mini session with her! Thanks Tatiana and we can’t wait to see you again when you return from Houston!

If you could send a text message to anyone in the world, knowing they would open it and respond, who would you send it to and what would you say?
I would send a text to Maria Kochetkova and tell her how much she inspires me because she’s short (like me) but has so much power and presence on stage.
It’s time to do a duet, you can choose anyone in the world… who is your partner? Daniel Ulbricht
How do you handle mean dance girls? or jealousy? What can you say to girls who are dealing with that now?
I like to tune them out and find a better group of friends to hang out with. Ignore those who try to bring you down and find others that will lift you up and support you no matter what and don’t let anyone get in the way of achieving your goals!!
You have an unlimited budget to take a trip anywhere in the world. Where would you go? What would you do? London! I’ve always wanted to go there. I would take an unlimited amount of pictures, shop tons and try every restaurant or cafe I could.
Can you please give me a basic history.. age you started dancing and where you dance now. 🙂
I started dancing when I was 5 years old and moved to All American Dance Factory in Tampa, Florida when I started getting serious about dance at 8 years old. By the age of about 13 I started to focus mainly on ballet and contemporary but also competed with my studio and continued taking other classes such as jazz and lyrical. I am now currently training at the Houston Ballet Academy and started training here in August of 2015.
