HOMETOWN: Placentia, California
Under the leadership of well-known choreographer Shannon Mather, the dancers of Mather Dance Company are a force to be reckoned with. Training and rehearsing six to 10 hours a day and well known for their story-based performances, this trio vulnerably pulls inspiration from their own lives. When Madi's mom was battling breast cancer for the second time, Madi wanted to work through her emotions by creating a dance to raise awareness. The close-to-home routine was not only beautifully choreographed but was performed with such excellence that it led the trio to undefeated victory in the competition world for the past six years. With many more stories to tell, MDC 3 are eager to hit the "World of Dance" stage, with hopes to inspire people all over the world through dance.
