This is Miss Mack’s 13th year as an instructor with the WDA, with two years as an assistant teacher before that, and her 25th year as a member of the Academy.  Miss Mack has her degree in Elementary Education, and graduated with Honors with Distinction from the University of Alberta. Miss Mack has completed her

She is currently working toward obtaining her CDTA Member Exam,

making it possible to enter students of all tap grades in exams.  

Recently, Miss Mack became certified in Intellidance Babies, and is working

Coastal Dance Range, where she took classes from Benji Schwimmer, Mia

Michaels and Blake McGrath, and the Showtime 5,6,7,8! workshop in Saskatoon,

where she took classes offered by Justin Jackson and Kevin MyIrea. It was at

this 5,6,7,8! competition that Miss Mack competed a tap solo, placing 1st in her
