What does a working mother do after being a "ballet mom" for 15 years? Take ballet class at MCD, of course! Since it’s inception, Melinda Neal has created a professional and dynamic studio where classical ballet as well as other forms of dance are embraced with passion and clarity. She skillfully teaches a traditional ballet class while infusing elements of pilates. Melinda has a solid understanding of body dynamics - translation: her students receive an anatomy class and learn how to dance safely. This is crucial for the growing adolescent as well as for the aging adult to prevent injury. As a senior citizen and as a physician I welcome this approach to classical ballet. Her adult classes are thoughtfully instructed, fun and rewarding, and the students are supportive and kind. Trust me, she makes us work, but somehow time flies in her class. Her classes end with big smiles and sweat. I call it my happy medicine. MCD is a Marin jewel. I can’t say enough about Melinda; she is a professional and inspirational mentor and kind soul. Her generosity to her students is infinite. We are so fortunate to have her in our community.
