Madeleine grew up in Suffolk where she attended the local dance school every day after school. When she was 14 she realised that she wanted to have a career in dance and, at 16, moved to Birmingham to begin training at Elmhurst School for Dance.
She attended the school for three years completing her A-levels and Level 6 National Diploma. After graduating, Madeleine joined the Northern Ballet Graduate programme where she gained experience dancing with the company. Unfortunately during this time she was badly injured and had to have an operation, which resulted in her having to take a break from dancing. She instead focused her energies on teaching.
After recovery Madeleine joined the Vienna Festival Ballet Company and whilst working completed a BA Hons in Professional Practice in the Arts.
Miss Madeleine assists our Saturday morning Baby Ballet and Baby Hip Hop classes at Cuckoo Hibou.
She also teaches our Friday morning 10:00 Baby Ballet class.
