One of the seminal artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, Paul Taylor continues to shape the homegrown American art of modern dance that he has helped define since becoming a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954. Described as “America’s most magnificent dancing machine performing America’s most deeply communicative and wildly theatrical modern dance” (San Francisco Examiner) and “one of the few indisputably great dance companies in the world” (New York Post), Paul Taylor Dance Company is the perfect finale to our 15th Anniversary Season!

Nearly 2,200 Milwaukee students from 45 schools (40 MPS schools) will take center stage in the tenth annual, citywide Danceworks Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap (MHBT) Competition. This event is free and open to the public.

ABOUT MAD HOT BALLROOM AND TAP

The primary goals are to:

  • To improve students’ social and emotional skills;
  • To improve students’ respect for self and others;
  • To improve students’ attitudes toward physical activity.

Danceworks MHBT runs February – May.  Participating schools select one 4th or 5th grade classroom to participate in tap and one 5th or 6th grade classroom to participate in ballroom. Danceworks instructors provide one-hour dance classes twice per week for each style of dance over the course of 12 weeks – 24 total hours of dance per classroom.  Culminating performance at each school, as well as an annual Danceworks MHBT Competition held at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in downtown Milwaukee, cap off the program in May.   Families incur no costs for this program.
