Makena Sneed began dancing at 14 years old, and quickly developed a passion for the art of dance. At 16, she spent a summer studying at Interlochen Arts
Academy where she worked under the direction of Denise Vale (Director, Martha Graham Dance Company) among others. As a modern major at Interlochen,
Makena focused on studying ballet, jazz and modern, with a specialization in composition and choreography. Makena spent several seasons on the traveling
staff at Celebrity Dance Conventions, as a teaching assistant in jazz, ballet, lyrical, and musical theatre. Additionally, she has experience working
with beginner to advanced level dancers ages 3-18 in several different dance programs around the Denver-metro area. Makena is very excited to help
Colorado Ballet Leap N' Learn students develop a life-long understanding of the importance of creative exploration and physical activity through dance!
