Malorie Colby began dancing at MelRoe’s at the age of 4. She is trained in a variety of styles including tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, tumbling, musical theatre, pointe, and pom. She danced and tumbled competitively for nine years with MelRoe’s and was awarded with Dancer of the Year in 2015. In high school, she danced on the Truman Startsteppers and then moved and continued high school at Liberty North where she was on the Golden Girls Varsity dance team and was captain her senior year. She attended UDA dance team camp and was awarded with All American two years in a row. She now attends William Jewell College and is on their dance team as well.
Malorie is currently studying Accounting, Non-profit Leadership, and Applied Critical Thought and Inquiry at William Jewell. She continues to grow in dance by dancing at a collegiate level, iPush events, attending dance conventions, and workshops. She is also an NDA (National Dance Alliance) instructor where she travels the country during the summer instructing high school dance teams at their summer camps. This has both improved Malorie’s dance knowledge as well as how to be a better teacher.
Malorie is excited to continue being on staff at MelRoe’s because she has wanted to since the day she walked in the doors. She can’t wait to share her knowledge and experience with the younger dancers.
