Danceworks Youth Performance Company’s 2020-21 Season

Danceworks Youth Performance Company (DYPC) is a company of Milwaukee-area dancers, ages 7-18, including Danceworks Minis and a Junior and Senior Company.

It is the goal of Danceworks Youth Performance Company to provide young artists of Milwaukee and the surrounding areas with quality dance training, new and exciting performance opportunities, and a connection to the larger arts community that ignites a lifelong interest and participation in the arts.

Within Danceworks Youth Performance Company, we strive to nurture and develop the body and spirit through dance technique, fitness, physical discipline and self-expression. Modeled after the professional company, Danceworks Performance MKE (DPMKE), DYPC members train in the art form year-round and participate in a season of dance events and concerts. Participating in DYPC is a great opportunity for young dancers to rehearse and train together, while enjoying unique performance experiences!

Location: Danceworks Parking Lot

LOOK! Up in the sky! It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Danceworks 2021 Showcase!!
Danceworks student showcase is an opportunity for dancers of all ages to take the stage to show the progress they have made through their hard work and dedication. Dance is a performing art so performing is a big part of the learning process and this experience helps build self-esteem and confidence.

This year’s showcase, Up, Up, and Away, will spotlight the joy that dance brings, even during a time when things feel so different. Our students who are learning in-person and virtually feel proud of the accomplishments they are achieving week after week. The attention and applause from friends and family on the showcase day is their reward for all their hard work. We hope you will be able to join us!

Past 2020-21 Performances:


Danceworks Performance MKE and Milwaukee Opera Theatre presented…

Enchanted Park(ing Lot)

October 15-17, 2020// 7pm & 8:30pm

in Danceworks Parking Lot

In their 6th collaboration together, Danceworks Performance MKE & Milwaukee Opera Theatre took art songs outdoors this autumn for a hauntingly beautiful evening in the Danceworks Park(ing Lot). The Milwaukee River and the night sky provided the backdrop for opera and dance that mingled with shadows and mystery. Patrons had to RSVP to reserve a socially distant plot in the lot, brought lawn chairs, blankets, refreshments and enjoyed an evening of enchantement! Proudly featured dancers from Danceworks Youth Performance Company as guests.
