In 2012, Madeline initiated the aerial program at Muhlenberg College. It was an immediate success and grew into four full time classes, student run evening length productions, professional workshops and performances on and off campus. At Pace University, Madeline instructs the Aerial 1 and 2 courses and choreographs for the annual spring showcase, Dance Out Loud. Alumni from these programs have been accepted to the New England Center for Circus Arts and professional schools in Toronto and Quebec. They are teaching at circus camps and studios in the US and have been cast in professional shows with Disney and various cruise lines.
Madeline is a creative, committed and energetic teacher... She approaches and presents the course material with creativity and authority... She cares about the students and really makes sure they are accomplishing the material to the best of their physical capabilities.

Director, Commercial Dance Program
Madeline worked with us to secure the necessary equipment, to rig a dance studio to support the work and (predictably) to reassure the College with respect to safety concerns... The course was an immediate and unabashed success... she is enormously knowledgable, appropriately attentive to safety, and inspires her students to achieve their personal and artistic best.
