Taking it to the streets!

We launched Ballet Beat in 2017 to reach deeper into the community during the off-season, Milwaukee’s festive summertime! Beginning June 24 we’ll bring professional dancers into libraries, community centers and senior centers throughout the Greater Milwaukee on a month-long tour of free activities and performances. The tour ends with two free performances on outdoor stages!
