Makayla was born and raised in Calgary where she grew up as a competitive dancer. Shortly before graduating high school she was introduced to the magical world of musical theatre, which inspired her move to Vancouver to attend the Musical Theatre Program at Capilano University. While attending post secondary, Makayla was a company member with The Source Dance Company where she trained and worked with the top industry professionals. Upon graduation in 2014, she has been busy performing in theatre, and film across Canada and throughout the world.

Her next adventure will be a season performing as an NBA Dancer with the Raptors Dance Pak. Go Raptors!
