Congratulations to our amazing dancers and choreographers!

Dance Wisconsin welcomes dancers, aged 12 plus, from all over Southern/Central Wisconsin to join our company and experience performance opportunities similar to that of a professional company.  Our dancers are not professionals but those seeking to perform outside of their home studio/competition studio and experience original choreography, full length ballets and outside study experiences with scholarship opportunities.  Dancers must still be enrolled of the studio of their choice taking a minimum of two ballet classes as well as modern/contemporary.  Tap is encouraged.  Auditions have occurred, but if you are interested in joining Dance Wisconsin please email Jo Jean Retrum at dancewisconsin@gmail.com
