Future of Dance – New Dance Studio Opens in Sarasota!
Melissa Dobbs, Founder of Metropolitan School of the Arts in Washington, DC recently relocated to Sarasota, Florida and launched a brand new dance studio, FUTURE OF DANCE. She has taught nearly 10,000 students over the past two decades, many who have gone on to be professionals in the field or have matriculated to some of the most prestigious performing arts colleges in the world. As a student of Harvard Extension school, Dobbs has a passion for psychology and growing healthy brains through movement and music and aims to teach dance differently. Over the past 20 years, she developed a curriculum from her research in neuroscience and somatics that confirmed the connection between dance and the overall quality of people’s lives. Dance has been scientifically proven to increase positive brain function in children and adults alike.
