Madeline Stuart walks NY, ready to open Ipswich studio

AFTER dominating the catwalk at New York Fashion Week and spreading the message of social inclusion world-wide, Mount Crosby teen Madeline Stuart is ready for her next challenge.

The young model is the ambassador for the InsideOutside Dance Ensemble, which supports young people with disabilities who want to learn dance.

Madeline's mum and manager Rosanne Stuart said there were no dance classes specifically designed for special needs students, which is why Maddy was helping InsideOutside Dance Ensemble open a studio in Ipswich.

"We are hoping to raise $20,000 to get it started," she said.

"We need to find a dance studio with a mirrored wall that fits about 22 students and we're looking for volunteer teachers as well.

"Dance helps with co-ordination, fitness, friendship and it's just fun. Maddy loves it."

Today I hung out with miss Australia. That was cool.
