Melissa

Melissa Coffey

Melissa enjoys the spotlight and a breathless audience, hearing the surprise and screams coming from a crowd or watching the lights dance on her skin while she defies gravity. Most of all she aims to be an expression of beauty, music, or theme touching the audience in a striking, memorable and inspiring way.

As a trainer, Melissa has developed her own modalities for teaching and believes this to be one mark of a safe teacher who invests time, thought, and experience into their students.  She loves to coach and choreograph and create characters with her students as she sees them grow into their abilities. She views her training as having holistic approach and while she values expression, she demands intentionality with form, effort, and gesture.

Melissa is founder of dances in air, which has released the first trapeze teaching DVD, and she teaches at festivals around north and central America, and hosts her own aerial retreats in January and February every year in costa Rica!
