Melissa Ray’s passion for health and fitness started with her early dance training right here in Traverse City. She was a dancer and performer with Dance Arts Academy and Company Dance Traverse where she eventually became an instructor, choreographer and Associate Director for several years. Melissa wanted to expand her knowledge of movement and the body and in 2004, completed her STOTT Pilates training and certification in Matwork and Reformer. With her extensive dance background and Zumba training, Melissa has also developed her own highenergy dance fitness class set to the latest pop and hip-hop music that she loves teaching in Traverse City. Melissa is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), has completed the TRX Group Suspension Training Course, and is also a Precision Nutrition certified nutritional coach.
Derek first became interested in creative movement as a child in the theater. After many years singing and dancing on the stage, he took interest in Cardio Dance, instructed by Melissa Ray. He loved the friendly atmosphere, high energy and calorie burning fun so much, that he has been teaching under her guidance ever since. High fives, laughs and feeling good is what Derek is all about when it comes to cardio fitness!
With 17 years of experience in the industry, It is my Mission to help healthy people enjoy balance and harmony through all the changes and lessons in life. This requires openness to expanding concepts and ways of thinking, doing, and feeling. To be touched, is the result of being affected emotionally, physically, and/or spiritually. It is my desire to offer a space of professional and skilled touch to assist one in a positive transformation.
