Artist Spotlight: Maddie Saada

Tim Schmall

Contemporary dance workshop II student Maddie Saada ’27 views dance as a means of expression. Saada brought her talents to the middle school last year when she performed in the Contemporary Dance Showcase.

“Dancing is my way to express myself when sometimes words can’t,” Saada said.

Saada enjoys contemporary dance because she believes that it contains the most meaning. As an artist, she strives to convey her emotions and establish new perspectives, looking to performing arts teacher Joe Schenck for guidance.

“The thing I struggle with most is allowing myself to go outside of what typical dance looks like,” Saada said. “Mr. Schenck has really helped in showing that dance is much more than the regular old contemporary movements.”
