Spring 2024

LA Semester

Madison has been living in Los Angeles, California since January 2024 through May 2024 where she has finished her junior year at Pace University. Madison has been very fortunate to take classes like Dance on Camera taught by Scott Hislop and Dominic Chaiduang, Choreography on Camera taught by Jillian Meyers, and many other amazing classes. At the end of the semester, she was able to perform in front of talent agencies and working choreographers with pieces done by Joe Brown, Rhonda Miller, Marinda Davis, Brandon Leffler, and Andrew Mulet. Madison was also able to take classes from guest artists brought in like Kenny Ortega, Mandy Moore, Brian Nicholson, Sienna Lyons, Jennifer Hamilton, Kat (Kathryn) Burns, and many more amazing artists. She was able to enhance her Ballroom, Heels, Hip-hop, Commercial Jazz, Ballet, and Contemporary training. While she was in LA, she took advantage of all of the outside class opportunities and took classes from Brian Nicholson, Will Johnston, Diana Schoenfield, Entity Contemporary Dance, Dae-Dae (David Coleman), Will Bell, BoiBoi, and many others. When she wasn't in class she was out exploring LA and taking in all LA has to offer. 

"Ever Loving" - Directorial Debut

Madison is excited to announce that she had her directorial debut during the spring LA semester in her Choreography on Camera class. She worked closely with Jillian Meyers and her assistant Claire Ross throughout the semester. Madison came up with a concept based on Greek Mythology specifically the Greek goddess Aphrodite. She played with gold paint to represent the love and lust transferring onto a desperate man (the male lead). Her video encompasses the male lead falling in love with this idea of Aphrodite and everything she represents. The mysterious and mystical feeling draws the man in until he becomes utterly obsessed and consumed by her love. She learned how to come up with a concept and propose it to a board. Madison learned how to light a stage and how it translates to camera, how to guide a cameraman with what types of shots she wants and what terminology to use to achieve those desired shots, and she learned how to guide her choreographer, producer, and dancers throughout the filming process. Here is a link to watch the final product. 

"Chicago, Illinois"
Fall 2023

Madison was cast in "Chicago, Illinois" Choreographed by Scott Jovovich for DancesPace 2023, where she was asked to act, sing, and dance. She rehearsed learning intentional choreography, vocals, and character development. Madison was mic'd up and had to quickly get used to hearing her voice over the big speakers in a theater, doing mic checks, and showing her confidence in acting, dancing, and singing on the big stage. She had the time of her life and loved stepping into the Musical Theater light.

Madison has accepted the position of 'Fall Sales Intern' with Dance Media Productions, more specifically Dance Magazine.
