“Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap teaches me responsibility, patience, and how to have a good time! Dance is my passion, a chance to express myself in a creative, fun, and useful way. The more I dance, the more my attitude adjusts to positive. I am glad that opportunities come along like this and I'm fortunate to receive them."
From a Danceworks’ Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap student
“I’m very excited about the All City People’s Parade and I’m hoping we continue to work on it because I think it’s very, very good for the city. I enthusiastically endorse the All-City People’s Parade and Pageant for its efforts to celebrate Milwaukee’s civic identity, creativity and unity. I encourage all Milwaukeeans to partake in this public celebration of the arts and I wish you continued success in all future endeavors.”
“The play Winter Voices provided not only an entertaining performance but an educational experience for all who were touched by the talents of the performers. It is this type of programming that helps all people to experience the diversity within our communities and to help us to better understand others often different than ourselves.”
- Greg Johns,
American Indian Student Services, MATC Milwaukee, on Milwaukee Public Theatre’s Winter Voices performance
“I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity for my daughter and my family. To see how much she loves it gives me so much enjoyment. Music is very important to us and we make time every day for practicing. Without this opportunity, we would otherwise not be able to provide such a wonderful musical education for my daughter. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Father of a 2nd year Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra Progressions student
