Drop me a line at susan(at)susanmckenzie(dot)ca.
I have a lifelong relationship with dance.
Performance (Dancemakers, RMDW, TIDE and independent projects, teaching, writing, rehearsal direction, artistic direction (Susan McKenzie Solo Projects, SMcK Dance, jumpstart performance society).
Formative influences: Dianne Miller, Linda Putnam, 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 work with MascallDance, volunteer for the Vietnam Education Society and I'm a member of the Southeast Asian Cultural Heritage Society (SEACHS) Board of Directors.
My husband, daughter, homestays, animals, and I live in North Vancouver.
