Hi there! I’m Maryellen, but most people call me Melen 🙂 It’s been my nickname since third grade, when my best friend’s mom came up with it (and it’s pronounced like the fruit!)
As far as schooling goes, I’m currently at school studying Musical Theatre. I most recently appeared as a Featured Dancer in Annie Get Your Gun. Below is my most recent headshot and a photo of me as Lily Belle in The Curious Savage.
I love snow, reading, Gilmore Girls, Cinderella, and Harry Potter (I’m a proud Hufflepuff).
I’ve been dancing for eleven years and have trained in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Tap. Ballet is definitely my favorite style of dance and I frequently obsess over tons of different ballerinas 🙂
Technically speaking, I come from a family of six (seven including our dog). There’s my mom, Melissa, and my dad, Mark, my two younger sisters, Colleen and Sarah, and my younger brother, Ryan. However (and this is where it gets complicated) I consider my best friend, Delaney’s family a sort of extended immediate family, which would make me one of ten. My Mom and Dad, Delaney’s Mom and Dad, Colleen, Sarah, Ryan, Delaney, her brother, Colin, and I!
I hope you enjoy clicking around my blog!
