Jenny MacKenzie

Step Dance

Jenny has been dancing since as long as she can remember. Having been blessed to grow up in Cape Breton with a very musical extended family and coming from a long line of piping and dance traditions, she gained a thorough appreciation and love for Gaelic culture. She has worked as a professional highland dancer and Cape Breton Step dancer since 2005, touring and performing in musical theatre throughout Canada, the United States and the UK! Having the opportunity to perform with productions such as DRUM!, The Ships of 1801, Coastal Rhythms, Pogey, Nova Scotia Here and Now, The Beaton Sisters Band, Squid Precision Drummers, Fileanta, Nuallan and many more, her love of performance has taken her far. Some favourite highlights include performances at The Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Parliament Hill on Canada Day, Massey Hall in Toronto and Dollywood Festival of Nations. She is now running her own business Dannsair Fitness and Wellness in Inverness County teaching yoga, fitness and step dance.
