Based out of Santa Clarita, CA, Madison Schaefer began dancing at the age of 2 starting in Pre-Ballet and Tap classes. After falling in love with dance, at the age of 6, she started furthering her training in different genres including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Musical Theater. Madison grew up competing in the dance competition scene all the way through her adolescent and high school years having trained with Brandy Thilesen, Tara Page, Terry Bixler, Christopher Jones, Venus Hall, Erica Sobol, and many more.
Madison’s love for dance developed into a love for Cirque and Acrobatic training and she has furthered her skills by studying at the Cirque School of Los Angeles where she trained in numerous Cirque talents such as Aerial work including tissue, hoops, and trapeze, as well as contortion training, and Acrobatic/tumbling.
She has been featured in dance roles in Sleepy Hollow the Ballet presented by New World Dance Contemporary Ballet Company and has also performed professionally with Visions Entertainment. She continues to perform as an active member of the dance company Emerge since 2008. In addition to her dance and cirque training, she has a true passion for the stage in theatre and vocal arts having performed in numerous acting and theater roles.
Madison loves teaching and choreographing all styles of dance, aerial and acrobatics and truly enjoys all ages from 2-18. She is so excited to work with the students of Edge Dance Center to help them to continue to expand and diversify their talents.
