Makenna has danced with Legacy Ballet Academy since 2018 after moving to Arizona from New Mexico.
Her roles in this year's The Nutcracker Suite include Frannie, Teacake, snowflake, and lead flower. Past roles have included Party Girl, Spanish Chocolate, Angel, and Flower.
A seventh grader at Sonoran Trails Middle School, Makenna's favorite class is math. When she's not at school or dance, she likes to watch movies, bake, sew, and craft.
Makenna loves dance because she can be graceful and passionate about something while forgetting about her anxiety.
