My name is Mariska Lopez. At the time of DCC being started I knew it would amount to amazing things, but now amazing doesn’t come to terms anymore. This company will be the face of everything and I’m pleased to be a part of the journey now, and volunteering in any way possible. This opportunity will be an eyeopener for me and I’m beyond proud of what achievements Ms. Melisha and her company have had in the few past years.
My name is Leni Tatum and I have been volunteering with Dreamchasers for the past 3 years. I am also a parent of one the dancers. I work in the Administrative area of the company. I was extremely delighted when Melisha came to me and ask to be on the Dream Team. I’m so extremely happy and proud to see how God is and has been continuing to excel Dreamchasers. The dedication and determination of each student taught by Ms. Mel and & Ms. Cassiedy is what makes me enjoy volunteering my time with Dreamchasers.
Michael Rhoden has been dancing with Dreamchasers Cayman from the beginning. He’s been dancing from 8 years old and developed a passion for it from then. He is always willing to learn more to be as versatile as possible so that he knows how to do more than one type of dance. He got his inspiration from a local dance group with the name of “Black eagles” who are dancehall dancers. After falling in love with dancing for years he started to learn different styles and techniques, which was added to his knowledge. Michael has given the opportunity to go on an international stage and represent the Cayman Islands in Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica and the USA. After a few years of dancing he developed choreographing skills and was given the opportunity to choreograph a piece of his own which was performed in Jamaica titled “Afussiom Vibes”. Michael loves to listen to music in his free time and do small choreographies on his own. He believed that he would always be dancing forever no matter the age and he would like to inspire other people to dance.
When I was looking for a Dance company to enroll my daughter,the main criteria that I was looking for were something that promoted Caymanian/ Caribbean culture,a place that will foster independence, and somewhere that would help my daughter break out of her shell.With Dreamchasers Cayman, those boxes have been checked along with many more! However the most important fact is that she loves her class and Ms. Mel! I’m so happy we found this little family to be a part of and I look forward to seeing how Imani progresses with them over the years
Finding Dreamchasers Cayman was a dream come true! My daughter continues to grow in her skills and love of dance. My son who is also a part of this vibrant company is currently show casing skills learnt in dance on the football field. Not only have they improved in their techniques but their self-confidence has grown as well. They both feel valued as dancers and as individuals. Talented, enthusiastic teachers combined with a strong, developmental skills based program and extremely interesting choreography make this place very special. An added plus is the emphasis on respect of classmates, resulting in a pleasant atmosphere for both students and parents
To me Dreamchasers Cayman is not just a dance group but more of a family, and being apart of this family has been an amazing experience. It has allowed me to not only grow as and individual dancer but also as a member of a team/dance group. Dreamchasers is founded by a professional dancer known as Melisha Mcfield and boy are we lucky to have her. She taught us to not be complacent with our selves and to push eachother to be the best of our limits. Today Dreamschaser Cayman continues to impact the island and we do not plan to stop here. As we say all the time, “we are bigger than Cayman” which simply means we are going to impact the world
I’m a proud parent and staff of Dreamchasers Cayman. I am so happy to be part of such great talented young children. DCC has come so far and will continue to grow further and further in excellence. Since my daughter has been dancing with DCC, her confidence level is extremely high. This kid went from running off the stage while performance is on, to actually owning the stage. I have to thank DCC for playing a major part in this. Proud and Happy parent to be a part of the company. I LOVE DCC

DreamChasers Cayman. I had given up on dance schools for my two daughters at the time when I experienced racial discrimination and favoritism in dance schools I had them previously enrolled in. When I was asked to allow them to attend a dance workshop one summer by Ms. McField, I was hesitant and a little nervous but she just said “Please, trust me ok.” I did and the rest was history. My eldest didn’t find her rhythm before all of this so she always looked awkward dancing but she had enthusiasm and that was enough for Ms. McField. My youngest had zero desire to do dancing but somehow Ms. McField got her out. Between Ms. McField and Ms. Cassiedy, watching my daughters now perform on a stage brings tears to my eyes because I cant believe that’s my children on stage. The passion, the rhythm, the sass- is what makes me scream loudly for them every time in the audience when they perform. I am their absolute biggest fan! Things that I doubt they can do, Ms. McField has always proved that they are beyond limiting themselves to the basics. This dance school not only performs on stages, but it teaches them discipline, independence, creativity and dedication. I have no doubt that I’ve made the right decision trusting a vision that the DCC chief Ms. McField has
