 Thank you to the hundreds of patrons that came to our New Works "Beyond Ballet" concert Saturday, October 10, 2015!  The dancers appreciated your warmth and enthusiasm.  

A number of these pieces will be performed again on the evening of January 23, 2016 in Promenade Hall at the Overture Center for the Arts.



   Dance Wisconsin Golf Outing was a great success!  Thank you to all whom attended!  You make our season possible and we are very grateful for your support.  A special thank you to Former Governor Tommy Thompson and his family for joining us and his heartfelt talk on supporting the arts.

Thank you to everyone that attended Dance Wisconsin's Nutcracker!  The show was a rousing success with the audiences.  We heard wonderful reviews from patrons while still at the theater.  We recieved a number of glowing letters from patrons that just wanted us to know how much they enjoyed the show.  There were heartfelt Facebook posts as well.  Thank you to everyone of you for helping to make Nutcracker such a great success!  Jo Jean Retrum, Artistic Director
