Maya began dancing at the age of 4 and has spent the last 13 years at Marr Mac Dance. During her time at there Maya trained and competed in a variety of styles such as ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, musical theatre, and acro. Throughout her time dancing, she volunteered as a teachers assistant and helped put on a private musical theatre production. While putting on this production she was given the opportunity to design and make costumes and help choreograph dances which is when she decided that she not only loved to dance but she also loved to teach dance. She has trained in the advanced syllabus of Vaganova, completing exams in ballet along the way.
Maya is a Grade 12 student at Strathcona High School where she is a part of the Scona dance program. Being a part of the Scona dance team has allowed her to explore a new side of dance that isn’t strictly competition based.
Maya is excited to pursue a career as a dance teacher at J’adore Dance and to continue to instil the love of dance into young minds.
