DANCE WISCONSIN COLLABORATIONS II - This performance will feature the Second Act of La Fille Mal Gardee, The Unguarded Daughter, Saturday March 9 at 7:00 pm at the Mitby Theater.  It will also feature contemporary concert length pieces featuring the Dance Wisconsin Company, Central MidWest Ballet and Bray Ballet.  Our hope is to introduce the community to all that Dance Wisconsin does from classic ballet to contemporary/ballet concert length pieces.  As well as introduce our patrons to Central MidWest Ballet and Bray Ballet.  Wonderful things are happening in Wisconsin with companies collaborating together.




Thank you to everyone that attended Collaborations and thank you to Milwaukee Ballet II for their beautiful performances!  Rolando Yanes hosted an amazing Master Class that was attended by dancers from multiple dance studios including:  Monona Academy of Dance, A Step Above and Ultimate Leap. 

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
