Juan & Melanie’s Biography

Juan Mejia, born in Bayaguana DR, learned the authentic and traditional style of Bachata naturally while dancing in the DR for most of his life. Today, he is a product of his immense love for Bachata and his desire to continuously improve his dance. His style is classic, soft, and full of expressions that respect the accents of the music. You will have the great opportunity to experience and to become infected with this wonderful style. Juan currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland, where he continues to contribute to the growth of classic Bachata dance with his wife, Melanie. Melanie, a native German, discovered her love and passion for traditional Bachata when she met Juan. She is a great follow and has a warm approach to teaching with patience while transmitting her grace and follow skills to everyone in the room.
