Mackenzie started dancing at Elite Dance Academy in Calgary when she was three years old and completed her dance education there in 2012. She trained in many disciplines including tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, contemporary, modern, lyrical, hip hop and musical theatre. She has completed numerous ballet exams all the way to her Advanced 1 in the ISTD with plans to complete her Advanced 2 ballet exam in the near future.
Mackenzie loves teaching dance! She is certified in ADAPT (tap & jazz), the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (Associate Ballet), and Acrobatic Arts modules 1 & 2. She is also working towards her Associate Diploma, the next step in her ballet-teaching journey.
Mackenzie has her Theatre Performance Diploma (2014) and her Bachelor of Business Administration (2018), both from Mount Royal University. She is so happy to be able to use her business degree and love of dance working with the Acro Dance Teachers Association!
1. Acro Background: Before certifying as an acro instructor, the only acro I had ever been exposed to was when my sisters did it. Since certifying, I have been teaching acro for 4 years and absolutely love it!
2. Personal Motto: Every person is special and every person has a story.
3. Hidden Talent: I am a master cleaner/tidier/organizer (of mostly my house!)
