Kapria Mustafa This is also a great program. The Founder Toni is absolutely amazing. One of the best people I had the privilege of becoming acquainted with in school.
What's the youngest age accepted?
Keep up the good work, that you do.
DeQunese Price this is the place I spoke of
Hi Toni! I attended your last recital, and it was really sweet! The girls worked really hard and the parents were supportive! Proud of you! Keep up the great work! #keepitmoving #keepdancing

Mrs. LaKenna we are so very proud of you.

Meet Lakenna Booker, our Founder, and Head of School!

Mrs. Lakenna Booker, MAT, has an extensive background in STEM education with nearly 15 years in urban education. She's published The 5E's of Inquiry-Based Science with Teacher Created Materials, Inc. The Parkway Village community is home for Mrs. Booker, and where many of her childhood memories were made. 🏘️

She attended Goodlett Elementary School and graduated valedictorian from Sheffield High School in 2002, both located in the Parkway Village community. Through philanthropy from the Memphis Rotary Club, she attended Phillips Exeter Academy, a prestigious boarding school in Exeter, NH. The experience showed Mrs. Booker that education looked different in other places and that genius is relative.

After completing a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in Cell and Molecular Science from the University of Tennessee at Martin, she joined an alternative teacher licensing program through the University of Memphis. 🎓 Mrs. Booker quickly understood her purpose in life is to teach and unlock opportunities for others through the impartation of knowledge.

After almost a decade in the urban classrooms and schools, Mrs. Booker joined the Building Excellent Schools Fellowship to train, lead, and found Memphis Merit Academy in response to the literacy data in the Parkway Village community.

As the Founder and Head of the School of Memphis Merit Academy she oversees, sets, and monitors the overall instructional, operational, and financial direction of the school. Mrs. Booker has successfully secured more than $3 million in private, federal, and foundational philanthropy since the commencement of the organization to deliver on the mission of Memphis Merit Academy Charter School. 🤩 Mrs. Booker is unapologetic about the work of starting a high-performing charter school in her childhood community.

Mrs. Booker is excited to lead Memphis Merit Academy in accomplishing so much more in the future!

Flash Back to a beautiful African piece choreographed by Mrs. Mac. She crafted such wonderful work for the girls. Our sweet girl Mila lead the pack. Ms. Toni has watched this video so many times as a proud momma. This is “Kou Kou”.

Mrs. Mac thank you for what you have done for our girls. You created a memory that will never be forgotten.

Great job beautiful Girls. The stage makes us nervous but the final product is always AMAZING. This is what they hear on stage when filming for a virtual show.

The Ballet Barre is helpful yet a task. We have been working in the Twinkle Toes Ballerina II class on building our combinations.

As dancers, our bodies and minds have several moving parts all at once. Kelsey has to remember the combination, listen for musicality, know when to change from one position to the next, all while keeping her arms in 2nd. Great job girl. 🤎🩰

Pathways!!! Pathways!!!! We’re working on Pathways!!! This end of class activity was great for our students.

This exercise works on balance, control, movement, feet/eye coordination, direction, and high levels.

The students were grouped & timed to move and complete it in 20 seconds. It’s amazing to see how they change their movement quality when they are trying to beat the clock. 🤎🩰

Kammy’s legs are so strong. We’ve had her since 2. This combination includes 1st position feet, Tendu (stretching the foot and pointing the toe, all while brushing the floor) as she lifts coming back to first position. The legs never bend in this combo as the arms go back and forward from 3rd position arms. Great Job
