Maddy moves to open special needs dance studio

AFTER dominating the catwalk at New York Fashion Week and spreading the message of social inclusion world-wide, Mount Crosby teen Madeline Stuart is ready for her next challenge.

The young model and dancer is the ambassador for the InsideOutside Dance Ensemble, which supports young people with disabilities who want to join the dance industry.

Madeline's mum and manager Rosanne Stuart said there were no dance classes specifically designed for special needs students which is why Maddy was helping InsideOutside Dance Ensemble open a studio in Ipswich.

"We need to find a dance studio with a mirrored wall that fits about 22 students and we're looking for volunteer teachers as well.

"At this stage we would be looking at teaching contemporary and hip hop.

"Dance is great for people with disabilities. It helps with coordination, fitness, friendship and it's just fun. Maddy loves it."

Ms Stuart said the studio hopes to be open in Ipswich by January next year.

To donate visit 'InsideOutside Dance Ensemble' or head to Maddy's Facebook page for more.
