Ballet challenges kids to be respectful, diligent and poised, while Jazz dance often utilizes modern music and features syncopated movements, energetic choreography, and complex patterns. Contemporary dance borrows heavily from both ballet and modern dance and has seen a sharp rise in popularity over the last decade and has emerged as a favorite among many American dancers. In this class, you’ll learn the fundamentals of ballet technique, barre exercises and across the floor work for both styles.
Makenzie has been with CYT/Spotlight alumni. She started dancing when she was 16 years old. Makenzie has trained in ballet, contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, tap, and hip-hop. She has been teaching dance since she was 19. Makenzie has taught for CHAMP's homeschooled co-op and CYT. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's in Dance and Psychology at Northern Illinois University.
