"I believe that everyone can dance."

“Dancing is movement of the body sometimes accompanied by the feet”



Hello I’m Mel Carrillo

I have been dancing since the age of 1 ˝

I have a background of Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Hawaiian, Modern, Musical Theatre, and Country Line Dance.

I began my Ballroom training with Dance Masters of America, then Fred Astaire. I was twice named "Teacher of the Year" by Arthur Murray International.

For 10 years I owned and operated World Dance Center in Escondido.

I taught at Palomar College for 28 years and 16 years at Mira Costa College.

My classes were considered the “Teachers Choice” at both colleges.
