Singing and dancing like Madonna may be living-room-only fun for some of us. But for tribute artists, it’s a full-time occupation. And what’s even better than a Madge impersonator? One who dances!
So we’ve compiled 16 artists who love bringing Madonna’s movement and choreography to the stage.
Madonna’s dance roots are often a forgotten part of her story. She earned scholarships to the University of Michigan and a summer workshop at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. She studied with modern-dance great Martha Graham and performed with renowned choreographer Pearl Lang. Later, in New York, she rose though the club scene, dancing professionally for years before achieving super stardom.
As our heroine once said: “I am interested in the simple basics, which is I love to dance, and I love to make people dance.”
And we salute these Madonna impersonators who embrace that love!
