Melly Mel Inspires

ART RULES CURACAO 2014

 

“I live in my body,” Mélissa ‘Melly Mel’ Flérangile replies to writer Lys Stevens, without a hint of irony, to her question about the location of her home base. For one who is constantly travelling, this is not surprising. Her social media status, “Just because I wander, doesn’t mean I’m lost” echoes this nomadic ethos. For “Making Waves” in the January/February 2015 issue, Stevens finds out about this energetic and inspirational woman, and her personal mission: “Melly Mel Inspires.” 

The concept for Melly Mel Inspires is simple: Flérangile is committed to re-investing her personal, dance-generated income so that she can offer high-quality dance instruction in under-served, often remote, areas of the globe. “Melly Mel Inspires is a movement that started in order to empower youth through dancing.” She has taught across North America, in the Dutch Caribbean, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, South Africa, Egypt, Gabon and Senegal.
