McKenna is from Maple Valley, Washington, but has moved down to Southern California to attend Chapman University. A dancer from the age of three McKenna has trained in a variety of dance styles but fell in love with ballet during her teen years and was a member of a small, local ballet company for seven years in Washington. She was lucky enough to dance roles such as the Arabian Princess, the Mad Hatter, and in her final year, Cinderella. McKenna has performed at Disneyland twice with her dance company and has attended intensives with Cornish College of the Arts as well as Summer Dance Lab in Walla Walla, Washington.
McKenna is currently a psychology major and a dance minor at Chapman University and someday hopes to combine her degrees in her future career. She hopes to continue onto graduate school for a Masters degree. McKenna has always had a passion for health and fitness and is excited that she gets to combine that with her love of dance at Tone Barre.
