Melissa graduated with honorable mention from the Professional Dance School of Mazatlán, directed by the Delfos Dance Company.

Bellwether
We are noticing our lives in relationship to a commitment to practice and movement and trying to rename/rewrite these acts. These rituals, when transcribed into language, often take on the form of a list, or poem. This dance is a question and a noticing of these occurrences, the pieces given impartial importance, regardless of their landing place.

Middle Space Dance is a container for choreographic and improvisational experiments in performance. Amelia Heintzelman (NYC) and Leah Fournier (MA), long time collaborators and friends, create work alive with play and failure. Middle Space has been supported through residencies at Centre Pompadour, (Ercourt, France), Chez Bushwick (Brooklyn, NY), The School for Contemporary Dance and Thought (Northampton, MA), and Chashama (Pine Plains, NY). 

Amelia is currently a University Settlement Performance Project Fellow and conducts research at The Woods Cooperative in her home neighborhood of Ridgewood, Queens. Leah lives in Easthampton, MA with her cat Chewie and is Assistant Director at The School of Contemporary Dance and Thought, where she also holds the current title of Fall Artist in Residence.

towards
towards is an excavation and an amplification. a re-direction and a remembering. in the direction of the ocean. in the direction of body. an insistence on multiplicity and intention. an allegory. an epigraph. an offering.
