Melodee Holsinger Bridges (AKA "Miss Melodee") is a dynamic performer, musician and teacher. Melodee is not playing a role, she is this delicious character who embodies the life, energy and imagination of youth. Adults will rekindle with their inner child and children become engaged and joyous the first time they hear her music or log onto her interactive website. I have experienced the magic of her talents through my daughters and am proud to encourage every parent to give "Miss Melodee" a try. I'm certain you won't regret it... you may even find yourself singing and dancing along.

Selecting this year’s recipients, was very difficult.

There was such an outpouring of enthusiasm from this class… that really… almost everyone deserved special recognition.

"My daughter loves Miss Melodee. She adores going to dance class and has the best time making friends and learning new things. Melodee has a magic touch with her students. She shares her love of dance and music with them every week."
- Julie Wolfson, LAist


"Miss Melodee is the most engaging children's dance and musical theatre teacher my kids have ever had. Her teaching style is incredibly energized and always super fun. She has this uncanny ability to jump seamlessly from character to character within a story, never missing a beat, all the while keeping the kids completely enthralled. They're learning and thoroughly enjoying themselves all at the same time."


- Julie Gunn, VP Production Lifetime Television

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Melodee Holsinger Bridges - Miss Melodee
2006 LA Music Awards "Best New Artist" Nominee; Melodee Holsinger Bridges (AKA: Miss Melodee) was born in Pittsburgh, PA. Upon the release of her first album "Nothing but Change," Melodee was selected as a finalist on David Foster and NBC's "Star Tomorrow." She has been performing professionally for over 15 years, but it is Melodee's gift of teaching that she is most proud of. Her youthful spirit provides a magical connection to her students and the fact that she exudes a "Princess" like kindness is both engaging and inspiring to her young dancers.

Miss Melodee has been teaching children from 18 months to 10 years of age for over a decade. She has also starred in and directed many childrens' productions in Los Angeles with The Advent Theater and Little Red Caboose. Her adaptations and workshops of childrens' musicals are huge hits with adults and kids alike. She currently offers classes throughout the Los Angeles Area and has taught Master Classes throughout the US. Miss Melodee's classes have become destination locations at studios like Creation Station and Millenium Dance Complex, as well as various Los Angeles private schools (The Country School, The Buckley School, The Oaks School and The Westside JCC to name a few).

Melodee has a BFA in Musical Theater from Point Park University. Believing in further education, she returned to school in 2010 attending UCLA. There she worked with acclaimed lyricist Marty Panzer and won the Hal Gaba scholarship for excellence. Combining her skills as a teacher and her talent for singing, dancing and composing music, Melodee created the "Dancing with Miss Melodee" CD in early 2011. The successful debut of her "Dancing with Miss Melodee" CD has become the backbone of her teaching and an addictive "must have" for all her students. She's thrilled that the music she created inspires her young dancers to become anything they dream of.

ABOUT THE ALBUM
Mary Poppins put it best when she said, "In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and snap! The job's a game."

With this in mind Miss Melodee developed the album "Dancing with Miss Melodee" to help kids retain their dance lessons in class, while exercising at home, as practice, or just for fun!

With a fun pop style the album takes kids through a dance class from warm-up to finish with many dance styles mixed in together. The songs playfully let the imagination run free so the studio becomes a beach, the barre becomes a tea party, and leaping across the floor becomes a fashion show.

The album offers preschool teachers, childcare givers, parents, and dance instructors the tools to run an entire dance class, dance party, or fun-filled work out activity. Best of all it's catchy so mom and dad will want to listen again and again too!
