About the Founder

Melody Johnson has been dancing since the age of seven. She trained in ballet for eleven years before finding another passion, musical theater. Soon after starting musical theater she began her first steps to becoming a choreographer. She has choreographed shows for several theater companies including CYT Houston, CCT Houston, Applause Theater, Legacy FOIL, Porter High School, ImagineNation Theatre and the Players Theatre. Some of her favorite works include Grease, Shrek the Musical, Guys and Dolls, Bye Bye Birdie, Mary Poppins, Hairspray, Drowsy Chaperone and West Side Story. In 2017 Melody won the Regional Broadway World award for best choreographer. Before the start of ReFine Arts Melody put several short original pieces together with much success, realizing her knack for it. Upon releasing her first official ReFine Arts production, Reconstructing Alice, she knew she had found her place as an artist. Her love for her work only grows with each passing show.
