Makaihlah Stover Bio

My name is Makaihlah Stover and I am the founder of, The Branch: A Dance Experience. I created this intensive to better focus on the mental health and wellness of dancers.

Today, I feel like we are all so consumed with the competitiveness and comparison of others in the dance world. I believe a shift of energy is needed in our industry and I wanted to create a safe space for dancers to feel seen, heard and supported by those around them.

Dancers are not robots. We need to show them that it's okay not to be okay and it's okay not to be perfect.

I hope to open the eyes of our youth dancers and the adults that come experience this weekend. My goal is to bring back the passion and unity of dance.
