Koresh School of Dance, Instructor, Melissa Rector, Modern Jazz.
My spin class was cancelled at Fly Wheel Sports with Utley, or Lee as we call him at the Sporting Club at Voorhees in Philadelphia due to air conditioning problems at 1521 Locust in Philadelphia yesterday. I was already in the city so I called Koresh School of Dance to see if Melissa Rector was teaching at 6pm. Fortunately, she was, I ventured to my love of movement once again, Modern Jazz.
Thank you Melissa for sharing dance/life with me once again. You still are fierce, methodically precise choreographer as when I left a few years ago. Roni is very lucky to have you still around. ” I do not want this movement to look like a competition, I want you to feel it from your soul, heart.” she exclaimed with a voice of stern expertise. “Take those socks off, this is Koresh.” I did not have socks on as I know better. By the way, no matter how great of shape you think you are in, a professional dance class is the true barometer of fitness. Yes, I still feel sore down to my toes twenty hours later. It is a good sore.
Below is Melissa Rector. Yes she is one of Philly’s Female Phenoms.
