They don’t call her Melons for nothing, but you can call her Mel.
Better known as Mel, Marcia Melons has been dancing for as long as she can remember. Her grandpa, formerly an Arthur Murray competitive dancer, taught her how to ballroom dance in the family room.
Still she stayed backstage until her thirties when she took a belly dancing class. From the first moment she stepped on stage, she was addicted. She joined the Caravanserai Dancers from Bloomington, Indiana. Then she was invited to Different Drummer Belly Dancers, known for performing at festivals and conventions including Gen Con. Dipping her toes into flamenco, she even danced with ¡Baila Baila! After co-producing Forbidden Bellydance, she was convinced to try burlesque and has never looked back. In addition, she’s also a voiceover artist, an emcee, a drag king named Mel Mac, and has even been in the movie Jay & Silent Bob: Reboot.
She loves it when audiences sing and dance along with her. “No na-nas, no tatas.” They don’t call her Melons for nothing, but you can call her Mel.
