Please join us in congratulating Li Chiao-Ping and Danceworks very own Christal Wagner & Elisabeth Roskopf, the creative team behind “Provenance: a letter to my daughter”. This film won Best Direction at the Experimental Dance Film Festival, and was also selected to screen at Radfest in early March! 🎉✨This is a stunning film about a transnational adoptee’s personal experiences with struggling with identity, belonging and inclusion growing up in the Midwest of America. Directed and choreographed by Li Chiao-Ping, dancer Elisabeth Roskopf’s exquisite gestures and personal story reclaiming her heritage are captured beautifully by cinematographer and editor Christal Wagner. The film originally premiered at Danceworks Performance MKE’s show SOBRIQUET back in May 2022.CONGRATULATIONS to these three artists🎊 ... See MoreSee Less

Gina Laurenzi

Posted on by Danceworks News

Gina Laurenzi, a UWM Dance Department graduate and second season Danceworks Performance Company (DPC) member, previously trained as a Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago scholarship student, under Elements Contemporary Ballet’s Artistic Director Michael Gosney, and performed with both Giordano II and Inaside Chicago Dance. A desire to give back to her community and spread a knowledge of the arts compelled Gina to create Laurenzi Dance where she ran the studio class program until 2013. Currently, Gina serves as the  Owner/Artistic Director of her youth performing dance companies and she continues to produce thoughtful themed events with her young artists of Laurenzi Dance in Kenosha. Gina is thrilled to further share her love of the arts here in Milwaukee by teaching for Danceworks, being a part of the the MHBT program and in working with the young movers of Danceworks Youth Performance Company (DYPC) as part of the DYPC Artistic Team.
