Danceworks Mad Hot is an innovative educational dance program, providing arts and physical education to youth in Milwaukee-area schools.
Mad Hot’s Primary Goals:
How the Program Works
Danceworks Mad Hot runs September-May. Participating schools select one 4th or 5th grade classroom to participate in tap and one 5th or 6th grade classroom to participate in ballroom. Each classroom should average 30 students. Danceworks instructors provide one-hour dance classes twice per week for each style of dance over the course of 11 weeks – 22 total hours of dance per classroom per semester. Culminating performances at each school, as well as two annual Danceworks Mad Hot Competitions held at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in downtown Milwaukee, cap off the program in January and May. The Competitions are free and open to the public! Families incur no cost for this program.
