Melody Lacayanga


Originally from the Bay Area, CA, Melody began her dance training at the age of 5.

She was a finalist on the very first season of FOX’s hit television show, “So You Think You Can Dance”, where she was the runner-up and top female dancer. This experience opened up many doors for her, leading her to travel to the Philippines, Ireland, Canada, Turks and Caicos of the Caribbean, Mexico, and Singapore as a teacher and guest performer.

Her credits include Sonya Tayeh Dance Company, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Greatest Showman Live Commercial, Glee, the MTV European Music Awards, Wetten Das, Radio Disney Music Awards with Julia Michaels, Bunheads, America’s Got Talent, and came back as an All-Star on the eighth season of “So You Think You Can Dance”. She performed with Miley Cyrus’ “Gypsy Heart Tour” in South America, Philippines and Australia.

Throughout her career, she has modeled for Capezio, Nappytabs, Discount Dance Supply, and Dance Spirit, and was a cover model for Inside Dance Magazine. She is a brand ambassador for Fabletics Activewear and is on the creative team of the world renowned fitness company Piloxing.

Melody continues to travel and spread her knowledge, passion, award winning choreography, and love of dance around the world. She is currently on faculty with Adrenaline Convention and so excited to be joining The Industry Dance Academy.
