Testimony about Madison -
"I am so grateful to have Madison as a teacher the last few months. From day one Madison has been encouraging me to 'Take the Stage' and trust I am enough. Through repetition, cold reads and scenes I have found a safe space with Madison to play, take chances, dig deeper and connect with my partner.
There is no right or wrong in his class. He only asks that you give of yourself fully and unapologetically. He challenges you to really ask the questions, to share how you feel and to take risks. He is incredibly encouraging while at the same time holds me to a higher standard than I thought I was capable of. Madison is incredibly generous with his time and goes above and beyond to get the best out of you. He is invested in helping you grow and succeed, all you have to do is show up willing to do the work." - Kelly Reader
