“…all I can say is go see this remarkable troupe as soon as there’s another chance. They should be seen across the country…”

J. Schneider/ Shepherd Express

Come experience Water Street Dance Milwaukee like you’ve never seen the company before.

This showcase of both physicality and creativity is a presentation of not only the company members abilities as movers, but also as visionaries and creatives. Featuring the individual and unique voice of each of these choreographers, “Water on Water” is sure to speak volumes on the versatility of the company and make a splash in the Milwaukee dance community.

Danceworks Youth Performance Company presents…

Sunday, April 26, 2020 // 1:30pm 

at Danceworks Studio Theatre

Join the youth artists of DYPC as they dive into a range of topics and explore their other interests through movement. In STEAM Ahead, we begin in a classroom setting and investigate various areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through, you guessed it, “A” – the arts! Performers begin as students at desks but soon their excitement in a topic gets swept up into a visual, interactive learning experience where sound clips and movements are remixed and the classroom is transformed into a world of exploration and reinvestigation. The experience of learning becomes an all encompassing journey through movement, media, and music!

101 Ways to Enter & Exit (Stage Door Left)

at Next Act Theatre


Our lives are marked by comings and goings. Sometimes a grand and sweeping entrance – sometimes an abrupt and unexpected exit. Long goodbyes, stumbling onto stage unprepared or shot like a cannon into the unknown. We’ll explore tales that exude humor, sorrow, joy and compassion crafted by guest author, Jennifer Kohnhorst (The Moth Twin Cities StorySLAM Winner, DPC’s Secrets from the Wide Sky). This theatrical event unfolds with original music by percussionist Andy Miller (UWM Dance Department Music Director), who provides drum rolls to accompany grand entrances and the steady pulse that vibrates through the exuberance of birth, the endurance of life and the ritual and beauty of death. Choreography by Dani Kuepper embodies these extreme moments of lived experience through an intergenerational cast that offer a collective wisdom and diverse perspective of beginnings and endings.
