Meet the Business Owner
Director, Madeline Bartolotti, has been passionate about dance and tumbling all of her life. Her love of both disciplines has lead to her unique teaching and choreographic styles. Madeline's experiences include performing and competitive experiences in classical ballet and gymnastics. Madeline received her Bachelor's Degree in Dance Education from SUNY New Paltz where she studied under Dr. Gloria Bonali. It was from her that Madeline learned the Graham technique and was exposed to the works of other codified styles and dance pioneers. Madeline also holds a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology and is a NY State Certified teacher, which provides her with a strong foundation to mentor and educate teachers as well. An additional degree in Early Childhood Education and her affiliation with the American Academy of Ballet has helped her form her own successful curriculum in successfully training students of all ages. Madeline's school is located at Southern Ulster Center for the Arts.
