Students from all 34 participating schools will perform in front of an audience of thousands of friends, family and community members, sharing the new dance steps they have learned over the course of the Mad Hot program. The experience for the young people to perform on the floor of the BMO Harris Bradley Center is immeasurable.

2016-17 is the first year that the transformative program is being offered for the full school year, with students participating in tap in the Fall and ballroom in the Spring. Since the program’s inception in 2006, over 21,000 city youth have been positively impacted by the joy, health and creativity Danceworks brings to our city through Mad Hot.

We are especially grateful to the Mad Hot Competition’s partners. Year after year, the BMO Harris Bradley Center provides financial and logistical support to make the MHBT Competition possible. Their assistance and expertise is vital to organizing and making the competition run smoothly—creating a very special day for the participants. What’s more, the BMO Harris Bradley Center gives all of this to Danceworks free of charge!

In previous years, Weyco Group, Inc. generously donated 300 pairs of men’s dress shoes and 54 ties for our male ballroom students. During the last month of lessons leading up to the competition, we distributed the shoes and ties to students in need. Students proudly wore their shoes and ties on competition day. For students unable to afford competition clothing, this donation made a big difference.
