When I take class I lose myself in the best way possible, I feel the music and it takes me to another place. I hope to create such an environment that those who come to take class can feel that experience in their own way too.

Makenna was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, and has been dancing since she was 3 years old! From ages 5-18, she danced competitively in the studio world of dance competitions. While doing that, she was also a part of her high school's cheer team where she also won a state championship. After Makenna made the move to Las Vegas, her dream of being a collegiate dancer came true as she was a part of the UNLV Rebel Girls and Company. During her time there, she went on to win 6 national championships and create memories that will last a lifetime. Taking a short break from dance after graduating college, she knew dance was her love and couldn't let it go. That is when her next dream of being a professional dancer/cheerleader came true, and she can now call herself a Raiderette! It's been nothing short of a dream, and she's so grateful to be a part of something so special!
