Joe Gallagher (jg)

Joe Gallagher grew up dancing at his mom’s dance studio, Bataille Academie of the Danse, in Barrington, Illinois. During college at UW-Madison, Joe was fortunate enough to dance at Lathrop Hall with Kate Corby, Karen McShane-Hellenbrand, and Li-Chiao Ping. After graduating with a minor in dance, he has been working in Milwaukee’s schools as a special education teacher and school administrator.


Joe first came to know Danceworks through Danceworks Mad Hot. He watched his middle schoolers learn SO much over the course of a semester, both in terms of ballroom dance and their ability to interact positively with each other. Joe is excited to join the Danceworks family and to teach those interested in learning to dance!
