Teaching What Can't Be Taught
Dance Wisconsin prides itself on the quality of the individuals involved with our program. Home grown choreographer Chelsey Bradley is creating her first full length ballet this Spring for Dance Wisconsin; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. How did she grow creatively? How did Dance Wisconsin support her?
