Maddie Bairey started out doing ballet, tap, jazz, and gymnastics at various studios in California and later in Italy, where she spent her middle school years. She gave up dance for varsity track in high school and continued running at the collegiate level while studying at MIT. Following injuries that stopped her from running, Maddie turned to dance again and has never looked back. After finally discovering hip hop and contemporary, what started as a hobby turned into a passion – Maddie danced for MIT Dance Troupe, Ridonkulous, and Mocha Moves, and later joined Raw Elementz while completing her masters at Columbia University. Maddie loves being a part of EPIC and is so grateful to learn and grow with such a wonderful team.
