Melinda Stone, Instructor

Melinda began her dance career in tap class at the age of three and continued dance through high school. It was in college when she first tried clogging and fell in love with the percussive rhythms. She joined the BHM Adult Performance team in 2014 and became an instructor in 2018. Melinda is excited to teach in the BHMC Studios, but one of her favorite places to lead is in her kitchen at home where she enjoys embarrassing her two teenage sons.
