Additionally, Madeline has worked closely with FRESH Dance Intensive, teaching at many locations across Canada. In 2016, Madeline co-directed Beyond Movement Dance Intensive in its inaugural venture at Leeming Danceworks in Ottawa Canada. Madeline has also been working in New York City, where she worked with and performed in Sonya Tayeh's premiere production of you’ll still call me by name at New York Live Arts in December 2016.
