In the heart of Midwestern USA, Melba’s Inc. stands as one of the state’s most distinguished dance academies and studios, founded by the late Melba Huber — holder of both the prestigious Flo Bert and Savion Glover Awards. Under director Julie Doyle-Reyes, the institute offers world-class curriculums in several dance forms, producing high-caliber talents that have broken into the limelight of Broadway hits, including Funny Girl and Disney’s Newsies.
“The environment at Melba's is warm, kind, and enthusiastic. My daughter feels right at home when she’s there. She has learned so much from her teachers and developed lifelong friendships with other students as they’ve grown up dancing together throughout the years.”
Every February for a full half-century since its founding, the school’s very own McAllen Dance Theatre Performing Company presents a RIVETING variety show that they’re aiming to top in this forthcoming event.
Graceful discipline meets fiery passion in the elaborate excerpts drawn from ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, folklórico, and more — a flawless flow of finesse, technique, and pure, immaculate artistry. Together with the rest of their troupes, each performer expresses themselves with perfectly timed steps and flourishes. Precision and poise are tools of the trade, and you’ll find no shortage of them here among these promising young artists who will soon shape the new age of America’s dance culture.
All this is made possible in part by the tireless efforts of the following artists, instructors, and choreographers.
