MacKenzie isn't a new face to some of our older dancers. She grew up dancing through our system at the age of 3 - graduation. After MacKenzie graduated high school she ventured off into the world and moved to several places across the United States. With the recent birth of her adorable daughter, MacKenzie has returned to the Fargo-Moorhead area and we are so happy to have her as our Front Desk Manager at our South Studio. She is very knowledgeable on our day-to-day business, as well as our teaching standards. She relates well with our students, because she has been one, and she can easily assist the parents with questions. We are thrilled to have MacKenzie back at the studio and back in our dance family.
