50+ Performance Workshop Thu 10:00-11:15am (9/5/19 – 1/9/20) 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.
