BIO: Mel Charlot has been making her mark with her choreography, groove, & creativity.  Her choreography can be seen featured on TV shows such as ABDC (Qc), Dieux de la Danse, and CBC (digital short for Black History Month); music videos for artists FHB, Sandy Duperal, Sasha Chaa, Anthony de Montreal, and Cyrano de Montreal; and commercials for Avon.  As an assistant choreographer, she has worked on the Yandel Tour (Tanisha Scott), BET Awards, and Lip Sync Battle, and more.

Charlot (a French Canadian born artist of Haitian descent) has taken her hip hop and commercial dance training from Montreal to New York City to Los Angeles. It has given her the tools to perform alongside artists such as Lizzo, Deborah Cox, Chris Brown, Kanye West, Sofia Carson, Meg Donelly, Fetty Wap, and more. Her infectious charisma as a performer led her to the Broadway stage appearing in Holler If Ya Hear Me and in national ad campaigns for Jordan NIKE, L’Oreal, Amla Oil, Makeup Forever, and many more.

She has inspired dancers around the world from Canada to the U.S., Scotland, Argentina, the UK and across Europe and Asia.  She empowers emerging talent through her roles in artist development, movement coaching, and as a judge on well renowned dance competitions such as World of Dance, Hip Hop International, Hit The Floor and most recently as the co-director for The Monsters Show in Los Angeles (REBIRTH).  You can also find Charlot teaching in many cities across the US at The Monsters-A-List Convention, and as a guest teacher at top LA & NY dance studios such as Millennium Dance Complex, Movement Lifestyle, and Broadway Dance Center. Mel Charlot is simply destined to follow God’s plan for her as she inspires and shares her gift and hard work with others along the way!
