I love Melt Dance Associates. It's fun and different every time. I love the Jazz and Musical Theatre workshops and  I love working with different choreographers from around the country as we learn from their experiences.

 

 During lockdown Melt Dance kept me motivated, interested and wanting more. Even when I'm dancing in a carpeted living room we cleared space and I put every effort into every class.

I was introduced and fell in love with dance fairly late in my life considering the amount of talent that’s been training since kids. Melt has personally developed me in so many ways. Melts Opens classes push you to your own personal limitations and makes you constantly develop your technique, performance skills and flexibility. All through Karl’s amazing choreography and teaching!

 

He is not just a outstanding human being but a genuine, caring, loving individual that only wants you to push your own boundaries.

I would recommend Melt not only to professionals wanting to keep up their technique, but to students, returning to dance dancers & beginners. Karl is a brilliant teacher and the atmosphere created in his open classes is so supportive and encouraging! Helps to bring everyone’s confidence out with no judgement, only support from himself, but also the others who attend the class.

 

I would also highly recommend his Associate scheme for younger dancers, with its varying styles and industry professionals teaching the classes it is one not to miss! Children that I teach at AJSD absolutely love the Associates and it really is enhancing their training running alongside their usual classes.

Melt dance has taught me the professional side of the dance world and how it is not all about high legs and tricks, it's mainly about how you present yourself and the choreography given to you to catch people's attention.

Melt dance is like a big happy family. Such talented dancers and teachers who support you through your melt journey and help you improve in all aspects of dance.
