My name is Melody Afkami. I'm a native Austinite and UT grad. After graduating, I entered the corporate technology world pursuing Sales, Business Development, and Marketing. While I thoroughly enjoyed all the education and training acquired in my roles, I yearned for more meaning in my everyday life. For as long as I can remember, I loved to dance. It was my therapy, my best friend, and my creative outlet. I was blessed to grow up with formal training in pointe, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and latin ballroom, but I didn't realize my true passion for dance until I started teaching dance fitness.
Bringing people together and inspiring them to have a liberating workout is an incredibly rewarding experience. I love dance fitness because it's fun and accessible for everyone - with or without a dance background. It's not about having perfect technique or being the fittest, it's about letting go of your mind and getting lost in the music. I truly believe in the healing power of dancing in synchronization with others; it releases your endorphins and promotes social bonding. If you absolutely hate the idea of attending a dance fitness class, go home, put on your favorite song, and dance like a crazy maniac. I guarantee it will bring some much needed joy to your life!
