Mr. Baud began his professional career with the Carolina Ballet under Robert Weiss. There he would work with choreographers such as Lynne Taylor Corbett, Robert Weiss, Damian Woetzel, and Christopher Wheeldon. In 2005, Mr. Baud joined the Pennsylvania Ballet under the directorship of Roy Kaiser and would perform principal roles in ballets by Jerome Robbins, Peter Martins, George Balanchine, and many more. In 2009, Mr. Baud had the opportunity to work on the Oscar-nominated film for Best Picture, Black Swan, by Darren Aronofsky. In 2010, Mr. Baud would join the national/international tour of Billy Elliot, the Musical performing the role of Older Billy, and was nominated for a Helen Hayes Award for Best Supporting Performer in a Musical. He was in the ensemble of the national tour of Flashdance the Musical based on the iconic 80’s film under the directorship of Tony Award-winning choreographer, Sergio Trujillo. Maximilien has reprised his role of Older Billy in regional productions of Billy Elliot with the MUNY, North Carolina Theater, and the North Shore Music Theater Company.
Mr. Baud has had the opportunity to teach at numerous dance studios around the country, as well as coach the young Billy’s from Billy Elliot. Currently, he is on the staff at The Joffrey Ballet School, and Ballet Academy East.

Finally, Mr. Baud is Co-Founder of MSquared Talent, which was created when two dancers combined their vast careers as performers and teachers into an organization that develops the most up to date dance education for the 21st Century. Matthew Prescott and Max Baud each had careers that began in the ballet world and both danced on the stages around the world representing the most respected companies and choreographers in America. They both transitioned into the Broadway world via the Tony award-winning production of Billy Elliot the Musical. Their shared years of experience as performers adds value and a unique perspective to their collective goals of creating the best environment for which a student can thrive.
Both gentlemen found that teaching and directing because of their passion as their performing careers wound down. Utilizing the huge network of working professionals they have access to, MSquared is able to produce the most up to date dance education in America. it is the goal of MSquared to set the new gold standard in dance and theater training. We believe that with enough hard work and dedication that anything is possible. We believe that every student has the potential for greatness. We lead with love and mutual respect and know that our success is measured in the success of our students.
