Little girls want to grow up to be teachers, nurses and ballerinas.
Little Melody Paduani wanted to be a dancer. She was born to dance. Her mother, professionally known as Miss Chickie with her own dance studio for 50 years, was a dance teacher who taught her five children to dance from the time they were old enough to stand.
Melody was the youngest of Miss Chickie and David Paduani's five children and began dancing at the age of three years old.
"Mom didn't just teach us. She took us into New York City for lessons as well," says Melody Kline of Kresgeville.
