From the Madison area, Michael received his early training from Donna Davis Dance Studio in Sun Prairie. While in middle school he performed in the Madison Ballet’s Nutcracker. Michael took a break from dance training in his college years, but has always kept music and motion close to his heart. He enjoys community theatre and has helped out in local dance productions. He is excited to be back for his eighth season with MCVD Company to improve his skills and be with other dance enthusiasts. During the day, he is a 4th grade teacher at Waubesa Intermediate in McFarland.
