Now is the perfect time to mark your calendars for the first show of Danceworks Performance MKE's 2022-23 season, โ€œI Am Because You Areโ€ฆโ€! ๐Ÿ—“๐Ÿ“ฒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸปI Am Because You Areโ€ฆNovember 12-13, 2022Baumgartner Center for Dance128 N Jackson St. Milwaukee WI๐ŸŽŸ๏ธ dwmke.org/purchaseticketsExcited to learn more about the show? Read all about it below ๐Ÿ‘‡โ€œAnd you are because I am.โ€ In DPMKEโ€™s 25th anniversary season, the company explores the philosophy known as โ€œUbuntuโ€ by looking back at the unforgettable work that has shaped Danceworks, Inc. through the years. This philosophy, a belief in which our common bonds with others shape us deeply, single handedly reflects our communityโ€™s investment in helping shape our identity.

Los Angeles artist and Milwaukee Native Taryn Vander Hoop (@tarynvanderhoop ) will set new repertoire on DPMKE and Dawn Springer (@dawncspringer), Gina Laurenzi (@gina_laurenzi ) and Christal Wagner (@waitingforutah ) will revisit and craft brand new works for the stage respectively. ...
