2020 Studio Showcase


**In an overabundance of caution for the health and safety of our students, Danceworks Showcase will not take place on June 13, 2020, and unfortunately will not be rescheduled for the 2020 spring session. We know this cancellation is disappointing for our hard working dancers, teaching artists and families. 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.

Students in our youth classes will be offered a credit on their account for showcase fees and classes that are canceled due to COVID-19. This credit can be used for any programming, merchandise or performances at Danceworks and it will be good for one year from the date it is issued.

Danceworks Annual Studio Showcase 2020 presents…

Our Backyard and…Beyond!

Saturday, June 13, 2020 // 11am, 2pm & 5pm

at South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center

The annual neighborhood block party is off to a fantastic start! The streets are blocked off and filled with friends and family members of all ages. An epic picnic with games and good times for all! For best friends, Izabella & Annaliese, this is their favorite night of the summer! Unfortunately, it seems that times have changed drastically. Surrounded by a sea of cell phones, the girls desperately try to keep their older sister Julia from getting stuck in the screen. When Julia’s cell phone goes missing, she is distraught! Izabella and Annaliese work to cheer her up and soon they uncover a world of adventure, and entertainment, beginning in their own backyard!

  • Dancers should arrive at SMPAC for assigned dress rehearsal at the specific time listed on the website.
  • Enter the building and make way to the auditorium on the second floor. Greeters will be posted near the auditorium entrance. Enter and look for a sign with your dancer’s instructor’s name (ex. Ms. Gabi). Be seated with others in your class and await further instructions from instructor.
  • During dress rehearsal evenings, dancers arrive at assigned time and soon after are taken on stag for approx. 10 minutes to review and run through their dance number and connecting scene changes with instructor and Danceworks team members. Following their time on stage, a Danceworks staff member will lead class to have their photo taken. Dancers in one class can expect to be in and out of SMPAC within 45 minutes on the dress rehearsal evenings.
