“My name is Mackenzie Lawrence and I am a fourth year BFA UTeach Dance major from Austin. I am passionate about using dance to create open and accessible performance environments.”

This summer Mackenzie attended a Summer Study program in New York City at Gibney Dance. The program allows students to take 30 hours of dance classes each week and attend various performances, panels and discussions, creating opportunities to network with professionals in the field. UTeach Fine Arts selected Mackenzie to receive a Summer Travel Award, helping to fund her experience.
