I have known Me'lanie for years and finally had an opportunity to have her perform at an event. She arranged for multiple performers to be present for a specific amount of hours. She was absolutely professional and perfect for our event. I would recommend her to anyone as she is very versatile and look forward to working with her in the future.
Me'lanie has performed at my annual New Year's Eve party the Champagne Ball for two years and the guests always love her energy, dancing and outfits. She is passionate and professional and I would recommend her to anyone looking to add some sexy and fun excitement to their event. She'll even work with you to create a custom costume to meet your specific needs.
The event is attended by professionals who are required to dress for the occasion, the accepted dress code is: cocktail attire up to black tie. Guests range from 30 to 60 years of age.
Me'lanie came and danced and entertained guests with fantastic moves for over 4 hours at our charity fund raiser. She was punctual, professional and the crowd loved her. She did such a great job we brought her back again for last year's fundraiser too.
