"For truth to tell, dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education: dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with pen- that one must learn how to write." Friedrich Nietzsche

Melanie Greene is a contributor to The Dance Enthusiast, and a dance artist taking on the world through a curious lens. She is no stranger to swirling along the edges of the impossible and swimming among the sea of the minority. Her work weaves a tapestry of reflection and obsession. She has presented work at New York Live Arts, Dixon Place, Movement Research at Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange Upstart Festival, and Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance. She was a 2015/16 New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks artist, 2015 Gibney boo-koo Space Grant recipient, and 2016 Actors Fund Summer Push Grant artist. Greene has performed for heros Sydnie L. Mosley and Paloma McGregor, and participated in 2014 EmergeNYC cohort at the Hemispheric Institute for art and activism. She has contributed writing works to Dancer's Turn and Classic Voice North Carolina, and enjoys contributing written works to The Dance Enthusiast.
