Danceworks Mad Hot Rhythm (formerly Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap) is an innovative educational dance program, providing arts and physical education to youth in Milwaukee-area schools. Over the last 15 years, Danceworks Mad Hot has touched the lives of more than 33,600 students in grades 4-6 throughout the Greater Milwaukee Area.
Mad Hot Rhythm’s Primary Goals:
How the Program Works:
Danceworks Mad Hot Rhythm runs January-May. Participating schools select one or more 5th or 6th grade classrooms to participate in Mad Hot. Danceworks teaching artists provide two weekly one-hour virtual and/or safe in-person dance classes for 15 weeks – 30 total hours of dance instruction. Culminating performances for each school, and a Danceworks Mad Hot Rhythm Competition held virtually this year or at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in downtown Milwaukee, cap off the program. The Competitions are free and open to the public! Families incur no cost for this program.
