Miss Mackenzie

She started training in Barrie, Ontario at various local dance studios with a primary focus on Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop practices. Throughout Miss Mackenzie’s competitive dance career, she achieved numerous overall awards and scholarships at competitions across Canada and the United States. During this time, she found her passion for teaching through instructing dance for young children at the City of Barrie’s recreational facilities.

She was recognized as the M.V.P. of this team for three consecutive years and was also awarded the Optimism award from the Simcoe County District School Board for these efforts.
