Ballet: Masterclasses, Workshops, and Private Coaching
Madison is available for masterclasses, workshops, and private/semi-private coaching sessions. Masterclasses offer a wonderful opportunity for students to glean insights from a guest teacher. Workshops can be crafted and customized to fit a given studio's goals and objectives (i.e. ballet technique, pointe, corps de ballet, variations, partnering, etc). Private and semi-private coaching is an incredibly effective way to refine technique and artistry and/or to hone in on particularly challenging skills or individual goals. Contact Madison at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss availability, rates, and specific goals for your masterclass, workshop, or private lessons.
Gymnastics: Dance Coach

Athletics: Movement Coach
As a Movement Coach/Specialist, Madison provides specialized training in movement fundamentals (derived from ballet). She translates movements and principles from her extensive dance training into helpful tools and exercises for athletes to apply to their sport/practice. She strives to help athletes increase their overall body awareness, strengthen weak areas (particularly legs, ankles/feet, and core), and improve their overall alignment, mechanics, coordination, flexibility, agility, strength, balance, footwork, etc.
For players who want to challenge their body and brain even further, cross-training with ballet has proven effective for a wide array of athletes (i.e. Herschel Walker, Willie Gault, Lynn Swann, Rio Ferdinand, etc). Whether practiced to improve performance on the field or prevent injury and promote career longevity, adding ballet classes to the training regiment gives athletes a competitive edge.

Accompanists: Learn to Play for Ballet Classes
Accompanists play a significant role in ballet and the performing arts. In 2017, Madison founded an internship to prepare and equip accomplished musicians (i.e. pianists) to accompany ballet classes.
