McKayla Whitehead Competition Coach and Choreographer
I teach because I want to give every student the opportunity to love and have a passion for something that I love so much. The best part of my job is seeing the children grow. Nothing makes me happier than seeing faces light up with joy and pride after they have finally perfected a skill. I want every student to have the opportunity to know the love dancing brings.
