She started dancing for a competitive dance team at the age of 7 and has earned numerous awards and scholarships. This year will be her final year as a member of AKA Dance Company. She has been teaching ages 18 months through 6 years alongside Kim Ayala (mom) for 2 years. Kenna has been a mini/petite intern since 2017.
