Introducing the new team members and uncovering the truth about them has been so much fun. In some cases I am learning new information as well as I uncover the truth about Stageworks lates team member, McKenna Chappell.
What attracted me to Miss McKenna was her enthusiasm to dance and dedication to teaching kids. She hopes to pursue an Education Degree after she has earned some money and took a year to really discover her truth.
Here is her bio as it is published on our website under 'Meet the Team'. So here is Miss McKenna.
Miss McKenna was born in Edmonton, Alberta and has been training as a dancer since the age of 7 at BSSD in Beaumont, Alberta. She has trained in many different genres such as Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Novelty and Musical Theatre. McKenna has been a competitive dancer for 8 years and has won many scholarships and awards while participating at competitions. Additionally, she has also participated in many master classes around Edmonton and conventions such as Triple Threat Dance and the VIP Dance Events. McKenna has worked as a choreographer for 3 years at Beaumont Composite High School for their productions of Guys and Dolls, Big Fish and Mamma Mia! She also worked as a choreography for the high schools drama troupe who brought their production of Girls Like That to the Provincial High School One-Act Festival in Red Deer, Alberta where McKenna was awarded Best Choreography for her work by the Alberta High School Drama Festival Association. She has also worked as a private choreographer for a local voice teacher and was asked to create dance and movement routines for the students. McKenna is so excited to join the team this year and can not wait to share her passion of dance with everyone at Stageworks!

Welcome Miss McKenna. I think it is really awesome that you are our 4th teacher on our faculty that speaks French. I would love to hear conversation between you, Miss Melissa, Miss Taylor and Miss Gen. We can't wait to see you create art.
And . . . I am excited to work along side of you in Beauty and the Beast as the Lead Choreographer in this great Disney Production.
