The Nutcracker 2014 – Dance Institute of Dallas
In 2104, Mackenzie was given the honor to dance as Clara in the Dance Institute of Dallas’ production of The Nutcracker.   Mackenzie worked hard to earn this role, and learned so much during her training.   She is truly blessed with a gift of dancing and entertaining.  It is fun watching her grow stronger with each year.
