Mackenzie Martin

Mackenzie Martin began her ballet training at the age of two in Minnesota. She later supplemented her training by attending numerous summer intensives with top ballet companies, including: American Ballet Theater, Boston Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theatre, Ballet Austin, Houston Ballet, Miami City Ballet and Ballet Adriatico (Italy).

After graduating as a scholarship student from the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts, she received a full scholarship to continue her training in Miami City Ballet School’s pre-professional division. There she performed principle roles in Balanchine’s Divertimento No. 15 and Who Cares, as well as the Panther in Yanis Pikieris and David Palmer’s Carnival of the Animals.

Mackenzie danced professionally with Oregon Ballet Theatre, where she performed in numerous works by artistic director Christopher Stowell. Mackenzie later moved back home to Minnesota, where she began freelance dancing with the local companies of Minnesota Dance Theatre, Continental Ballet, Ballet Minnesota and appeared in the Fringe Festival.

Mackenzie believes having high expectations in the studio creates dancers who are driven, challenged and inspired.
