Melanie Rufien started dancing at Starstruck at the age of 7 through graduation. She was a member of the Mountain Vista Poms Team and then went on to dance at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She received her undergrad in Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences with a minor in Leadership, and is currently getting her master's in Early Childhood Special Education. Melanie works at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation and runs the Special Angels Program at Starstruck. We are so thankful to have her back at Starstruck, and she continues to share her passion for dance with all of her students each and everyday.
