Dance has been in Maddie’s life since she was three years old, and she has loved every second of it! She started her training at Mountain West Ballet and then continued at Linda Fenton Dance Studio when she was nine. She worked with Linda closely and was able to have many great opportunities because of her. She has been Snow Queen, Dew Drop Fairy, and Sugarplum Fairy in Mountain West Ballet’s The Nutcracker. Maddie also has trained in jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and character. She was on the Senior Jazz Company at Linda Fenton Dance Studio under the direction of Brittani Hale for eight years. She also was a four year member of the Hillcrest Dance Company and served as the President her senior year. Throughout her years of dance, she has been able to travel all across the country learning and performing. She went to ballet summer intensives at Long Beach Ballet, Ballet Austin and Oregon Ballet Theater. Maddie has taken classes at Broadway Dance Theater and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City, EDGE Performing Arts Center in LA, Spectrum Dance Theater in Seattle, Millennium Dance Complex in Salt Lake City, and has had the opportunity to perform on a Disneyland stage. Currently, Maddie is attending school at Westminster College studying psychology. She is excited that she gets to share her love of dance with her students and all she has learned through her many amazing teachers and mentors.
