Macks’ (they/them) love and passion for dance instruction, performance, and choreography began at a local studio in south-east Michigan where they trained in the styles of ballet, jazz, modern, tap, acrobatics, musical theatre, hip hop, lyrical/contemporary, and liturgical. Macks’ dance education includes time spent training with Joffrey Ballet Chicago, Kansas City Ballet, and the Russian Ballet Academy of Michigan/Academy of Russian Classical Ballet. Passing highly-commended on each level, Macks has completed the Cecchetti Method of Ballet, Grades I-V. Macks attended Eastern Michigan University on scholarship and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Dance Performance. In addition to teaching an array of styles at various local southern Michigan dance studios, Macks strives to share their love of dance and movement with as many people as possible and does this through their leadership in Ballet Chelsea’s Adaptive Dance Program, where they instruct dance and movement classes for folks of all ages and abilities across Washtenaw County.
