While studying at SMU, Madison developed a love for choreography and created two pieces that were selected to be performed in the division’s Brown Bag Series. She also performed in numerous works created by both her peers and renowned choreographers including Alex Sanchez, Robert Dekkers, and Brandi Coleman. In addition to her collegiate experience, Madison also studied with the San Francisco-based Alonzo King LINES Ballet in 2015.
