Production History and Photos
Each year, The Madison Studio offers a variety of performance opportunities for its students and Ensemble dancers. These include beautifully-staged public productions of classic ballets such as Le Corsaire, Giselle, Coppelia, Don Quixote, and Sleeping Beauty, and in 2010, selections from “Swan Lake” with Guest Artists Faith Madison from Colorado Ballet in Denver, and Giselle diBlasi Pugh and Julius Lagare from Atlanta Festival Ballet, and in 2011 our three Ensembles were featured in their Repertory Program. In 2011, we were proud to present in collaboration with Academy of Dance, Warner Robins, a benefit performance for The Wounded Warriors Project, raising over $2,500. We have also presented ‘The Night Before Halloween’, ‘Curious George’, and ‘The Who Who Gained Hope’ with choreography by Jay and Cristin Jernigan, ‘Holiday Happiness’, and in 2012 and 2014 ‘Fall Into the Holidays’. Our original story ballets based on 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Madeline' were presented in 2014 ('Alice') and in 2016 ('Madeline & Company') We also have for-parents-only showcases held at the studio, seasonal samplings, and on-site performances at area festivals, special events, senior centers and other locations, as well as our studio-wide Annual Recitals, held in late May/early June.
