MKE Performing Arts Homecoming Celebration

Danceworks DanceLAB presents…


This event is fully virtual and free. Patrons will be able to view the performance for the duration of the entire homecoming week (Sept. 24-Oct. 4).


Danceworks invites the Milwaukee arts community to join us as we reunite with rhythm! DanceLAB: Rhythmworks, directed by Danceworks’ new Artistic Director Christal Wagner, originally premiered in-person on August 7, 2021 at Danceworks Studio Theatre. If you weren’t able to join us in-person, you can now see the full length performance *VIRTUALLY* in honor of the MKE Arts Homecoming Celebration.


Thank you for celebrating with us!

About DanceLAB: Rhythmworks

Danceworks brings together a platter of tasty dance techniques and styles with one commonality: complexity of rhythm. From a sly swing beat to a rocking 4/4 rhythm, Danceworks Performance MKE and Danceworks On Tap will be joined by guest artists Cyenthia Vijaykumar (Kathak Indian classical dance), McNamara McCarthy School of Irish Dance, and Joshua Yang (Hip Hop) to present to you an exploration of rhythmic styles, ranging from weighted percussion via the soles of the feet to the internal rhythm explored by a soulful body. This concert features original music and performance by percussionist Paul Westfahl, and breakout flutist Jennifer Rodriguez. If we were to fit this show in the bottle, it would likely burst before you could take a sip!
