Melissa Michaels

Melissa Michaels, Ed.D., is a dancer and writer who creates movement-based cross-
cultural community rites of passage events focusing life’s major thresholds. Melissa
developed the first contemporary international youth leadership program rooted in
dance, which has empowered hundreds of embodied social entrepreneurs and peace
builders around the world. From schools in our inner cities, to refugee settlements, to
the United Nations, Melissa is a midwife of the soul who has dedicated herself to our
collective renewal through the liberation of the creative Spirit. She shares the story of
this work in her recently released book: Youth On Fire: Birthing A Generation of
Embodied Global Leaders.
