Drop me a line at susan(at)susanmckenzie(dot)ca.
Through performance (Dancemakers, RMDW, TIDE and independent projects in various Canadian places), teaching, writing, rehearsal direction, artistic direction (Susan McKenzie Solo Projects, SMcK Dance, jumpstart performance society), my relationship with Dance is lifelong.
Formative influences include teachers Linda Putnam, Dianne Miller, Don Farnsworth and endless collaborative discoveries with the Necessary Angel Theatre Company, New Dance Horizons, MascallDance, and as a contributor to theatre productions.
I've taught from the Stratford Festival and Simon Fraser University to impromptu gaggles of the many-aged imaginative. I sit on the Southeast Asian Cultural Heritage Society (SEACHS) Board of Directors.
My husband, daughter, homestays, animals and I live in North Vancouver.
