Dance Wisconsin is a regional dance company that promotes excellence in the art of dance. The company presents high-quality productions featuring dancers from all over southern Wisconsin and guest artists from professional companies around the world. These productions not only offer the opportunity for young people to explore new heights, but also to learn teamwork, commitment and a sense of pride in accomplishing something truly extraordinary. Dance Wisconsin is the state’s only Honor Company in Midstates Regional Dance America.
Dance Wisconsin provides the vehicle for young dancers to go beyond their studio dance experience and learn more about their art form while making valuable connects in the dance world at a professional and collegiant level. Dance Wisconsin offers dedicated dancers the opportunity to train at a high level to achieve their goals whether they are simply to be the best dancer they can be or if they wish to pursue dancing beyond High School. Dance Wisconsin offers them the training and opportunities to help make anything happen.
Dance Wisconsin also opens the door for youngsters who may never have the opportunity to learn about dance. Artistic director Jo Jean Retrum has successfully pioneered the Dance in the Schools program, which reaches students who may not have been exposed to the art of dance. She teaches dance classes in some of the Madison area’s most disadvantaged schools and offers students the chance to attend Dance Wisconsin performances at little or no cost. Several students have gone on to pursue continuing dance classes with Dance Wisconsin or received scholarships to other dance companies around the country.
