Makaia is 13 years old and trains at Danceology in San Diego, CA in contemporary, ballroom, hip hop, ballet, jazz, and musical theatre. 

She has had the honor of placing in the Top 10 at The Dance Awards and has been invited to YAGP Finals twice.  Makaia is also on the Killer B squad for The Ballroom Project convention tour.

One of Makaia's favorite aspects of dance is getting the chance to travel and experience new places. She loves to connect with choreographers across the country, who have been invaluable in helping her career.  She also enjoys making new friends with dancers all over the country.

Her future goals include dancing professionally, and becoming a versatile choreographer in many genres.  In her free-time, she loves art, photography, and design.  She is the oldest of four kids and loves being a big sister.  Makaia is in love with everything Five Dancewear makes and is beyond excited to be a C5 Model!
