Max Saron Bio

Max Saron began dancing hip hop at the age of 9, emulating famous dancers he’d watch on YouTube. Shortly after his parents discovered his talent, they enrolled him in his first hip hop class, training under Malachi Durant, at Julie’s School of Dance in Sparta, WI.

 

Max continued his dance career trying out different styles of dance at Eau Claire School of Dance, but ultimately came back to his first love: hip hop. Joining Madison Professional Dance Center at the age of 13, he began training under AJ Juarez in hip hop and contemporary fusion, and still trains, collaborates, and shoots dance videos with AJ.

 

Max also travels to LA and Chicago for training, having danced and trained with some of the best choreographers in those cities, including Ian Eastwood (World of Dance TV show), Matt Steffanina, Alexander Chung, CJ Salvador, TJ Modalla, Bryan Puspos, Wildabeast, Monyett Crump, Annie Franklin, Walter Maybell, and Alex Salgado, to name just a few. In 2017, Max participated in workshop with Matt Steffanina, where he was then selected to dance in Matt’s fifth episode of DanceCon (see it on YouTube!).

 

In 2018, Max was chosen by Ian Eastwood to be a part of his Chicago Young Lions team, performing around the Chicago area with dancers much older than himself. In 2018, the Young Lions hosted the Adicolor release party for Adidas, starring in video shoots for the company and hosting the Young Lions Jam at the release. Max also performed with the Young Lions as a featured act at the 2018 World of Dance competition in Chicago.

 

Also in 2018, Max won the hip hop solo competition for ages 13–16 at Monster’s A-List in Nashville. Max began teaching hip hop classes to all ages in the Madison area at the age of 14—weekly classes, workshops, and drop-in classes—finding the artistry of choreography and his ability to share his art with others most rewarding.
