Keenan McLaren, Company Dancer

A Boston girl through and through, Keenan spent the first 10 years of her dance training at Boston Ballet School where she performed with the Boston Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee, Stars and Stripes and The Nutcracker.

She danced with Ballet Austin II before joining the company at Dayton Ballet and performing soloist and principal roles from choreographers such as Christopher Fleming, Alan Hineline, Steven Mills, Jeffrey Hughes and Gregory Robinson.

Keenan then danced with Ballet Fleming in Philadelphia while also serving as Ballet Mistress and Repiteur to the company.

An avid photographer, Keenan joined Nashville Ballet as a member of the company in 2011. She even merged her two loves—dance and photography—to win a Dance Magazine photography contest in 2007.

When she is not dancing, Keenan teaches yoga at Epic Yoga as a certified Baptiste yoga instructor, counsels others as a certified life coach and teaches Yoga Body Boot Camp classes. She is an ambassador for Africa Yoga Project and traveled to Kenya this past summer on a yoga based service trip. Keenan is also a co-founder of Music City Yoga Festival and a co-founder of Empowered Kids Yoga.
