About the instructors, Melvin and Sharon

Sharon started dancing back in her varsity days at the National University of Singapore with the Social Dance Club. With a strong affinity with the art of dance, she made a life-changing decision to dedicate herself to competitive Latin and ballroom dancing, and propelled herself from beginner to virtuoso within a brief period of time. Sharon's commitment to dancesport and her vivacity as a professional dancer is reflected in the numerous international competitions, where she has represented Singapore. Her understanding of both the technicalities of dance and storytelling with movement distinguishes her success rate as an instructor for dancesport championship hopefuls.
