50+ Initiative


**In an overabundance of caution for the health and safety of our students, Danceworks is temporarily closed until further notice. As we continue to closely track developments regarding COVID-19, the decision to reopen will be made with the health of our customers and employees as our top priority.

The entire Danceworks team is saddened by our current situation. We hope our studio families will enjoy the videos for at-home learning and maybe even have a family dance party! Stay healthy and well.

50+ Performance Workshop Thu 10:00-11:15am dk
$170 (17 weeks – Payment plan available)


This workshop will be inspired by themes of Danceworks Performance MKE’s 2019-20 concert season, led by Artistic Director, Dani Kuepper. Dancers will be invited to explore movement ideas based on beginnings and endings, sometimes a grand and sweeping entrance – sometimes an abrupt and unexpected exit. Participants can explore life expressed through dancemaking in this choreographic workshop and contribute to the theme that will inform the concert season.


Optional performance opportunity in the DanceLAB Get It Out There Concert – in January 2020, and Danceworks Performance MKE concert, 101 Ways to Enter & Exit – in May 2020.
