"MAKING A DANCER MAKE A DIFFERENCE"
WHAT IS COMPETITON ABOUT?
We raise the bar high for our MADC Girls so they can make the judgement of their own progress in which they get a chance to dance outside of the "MAD" Stage, and travel & meet new choreographers and dominate the stage and their opponents. We believe all of our girls are worthy of the trophy, but in the circumstances of competing the points and placement is out of our hands. The competition was made to humble all dancers and push them to always be on their "A" Game. We do things the "MAD" Way or no way. We believe in letting our talent speak through movement and using the history of our culture to inspire our youth and teach our MADC girls about embracing the skin they are in, and what better way to give them freedom than to allow them to perform on stages bigger than our own. This raises their self-esteem as the crowds applaud them for being who they are which is simply beautiful "MAD" girls. We raise our girls to be rising champions and stars. Every MAD Dancer big or mini was born to be a DIVA and this is where their career takes off.
Be sure to throw on your shades because the talent shines bright no matter what. WE ALWAYS "BAD" because we "MAD!"

WHAT'S YOUR MAD STORY? WHAT GOT YOU DANCING?
EVER SINCE I WAS 11 I ALWAYS KNEW THAT I HAD A DESTINY. I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS DANCE HOWEVER BUT WHEN I REMEMBER MY FIRST COMPETITION, AND I RECEIVED MY VERY FIRST JUDGES CRITIQUE "THE LITTLE GIRL WITH THE GLASSES ALWAYS KILLS IT WHEN SHE HITS THE FLOOR." MIND YOU I HAD 2 LEFT FEET. YOU CAN SAY THAT ONE COMMENT SPARKED MY ENTIRE WORLD. WHEN I MADE 10 I LOST MY DAD, AND MY WORLD CHANGED FOR THE WORST SO I THOUGHT. BUT THERE WAS DANCE AND THERE WAS MY MOM. MY MOM KEPT ME IN THE STUDIO AND KEPT ME BUSY AND THE MORE I STAYED IN THE STUDIO I REALIZED IT WAS MY DESTINY TO BE A DANCER. I REMEMBER TRYING AS MANY SPORTS AS POSSIBLE BUT NOTHING EVER WORKED OUT BECAUSE GOD KNEW I WAS A DANCER I JUST DIDN'T KNOW IT YET. DANCING WAS MY TRUE CALLING. I KNEW IT AT 11 BECAUSE ONCE THAT MUSIC PLAYED MY MIND DRIFTED OFF AND I WAS NO LONGER IN MY ROOM OR THE STUDIO I WAS FLOATING ON AIR AND DANCING LIKE NO ONE WAS WATCHING. MY MOTIVATION TO KEEP GOING WAS MY MOM'S STRENGTH AND MY DAD'S PASSING, I KNEW I HAD TO STEP UP AND BE SOMEBODY NOT JUST FOR MYSELF, BUT FOR THOSE I CAME IN CONTACT WITH AND MY FAMILY AND THAT IS WHEN I KNEW BEING MAD AND BEING ME WAS ALL ABOUT "MAKING A DIFFERENCE." I WAS CHOSEN AND PUT ON THIS EARTH TO HELP THOSE WHO MAY BE IN THE SAME POSITION I WAS IN AND HELP THEM THROUGH OBSTACLES WHILE USING MOVEMENT AS A TOOL AND KEY TO CHANNEL ALL EMOTIONS AND TEACH THEM TO IMPACT AND INSPIRE OTHERS BY PERFORMING FROM THE HEART AND LEAVING EVERYTHING ON THE DANCE FLOOR. MADC GIRLS ARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COMPANIES BECAUSE THEY HAVE MORE HEART THAN ANYONE AND THEY ALL HAVE STORIES AND THEY DON'T NEED TO SPEAK LOUD FOR YOU TO HEAR THEM AND WHAT THEY STAND FOR. EVERYONE HAS A STORY BUT IT TAKES A TRUE LEADER AND UNIQUE ICONIC FIGURE TO PULL IT OUT OF THEM. WE PUSH OUR GIRLS HERE AT MADC. THAT'S MADC! DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE MAD?!
