She thrived in the competitive realm from age eight to eighteen and since then, has been training at Grand Canyon University, headed by University of Arizona dancers Susannah Keita, Alicia Nascimento and Kevin Godfrey, in addition to ASU dancer Angel Crissman. Furthermore, she trained with various companies and programs including American Ballet Theatre, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, the Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop, DanaMetz Co., and the American College Dance Association, in addition to receiving scholarships from the Gus Giordano School of Dance and Joffrey Ballet West.
Madison has premiered a handful of choreographed works, some performing at the Herberger Theatre and with Ethington Dance Ensemble in Phoenix, Arizona.

She is beyond excited to begin her post-college career as a mover and creator.
