Bronx born and Brooklyn raised Melany was always heavily influenced by her West Indian Peers growing up. However, dance came much later for her. After graduating Stonybrook University with a degree in Clinical Laboratory Science Melany worked in the top NYC hospitals by day and trained at the top NYC dance schools by night. After completing the Professional Semester at Broadway Dance Center in 2010, where she first met Tavia and Tamara, she was signed by Bloc Talent Agency in Early 2011. This enabled her to pursue dance full time. Melany became an official Brukwine Gyal in February 2013. Since then she’s also had the privilege to perform on America’s Got Talent and with artists such as Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monae, Jennifer Hudson,  Lil Kim, Luke James, and Eve. She looks forward to furthering her dance career while continuing to spread the Brukwine Movement Worldwide!
