Mery began her dance training in the Dominican Republic, learning Ballet from the age of 4. From there her family relocated to Denver, CO where she continued and expanded in dance through Jazz, Ballet, Tap, Pom, Contemporary, and Lyrical. She is an alumni to Starstruck Academy of Dance, and the Elite dance company. Her love for dance never faded as she continued her dance journey attending Utah State University pursuing her degree in Fine Arts. This allowed her opportunities to dance with and for some of the best choreographers in the industry including Tina D’Amato, Cory Finn, and Joe Loera amongst others. Additionally, she began training dancers that have moved on to college dance teams, and beyond to work with today’s top artists, films and Broadway. Since working in the industry, Mery has been able to broaden her experience in dance instruction and concentrate on the fundamentals of dance as well as advanced technique classes. This has enabled her to help teach and grow dancers from preschool age to collegiate level dancers. Mery has personally instructed more than 400+ young dancers and dozens of competitive dance groups across all age groups.
Now as a mother of two she has dedicated much of her time to her children and enjoying sharing her love of dance with them. She strives to provide the highest quality of dance education emphasizing fundamentals and improving technique to help hone dancers skills to open new doors and give them additional opportunities to dance. She loves providing students with encouragement and positive reinforcement to allow personal growth. This helps to improve the self-esteem and confidence of her dancers so they are strong in body and in mind.
