Youth Performance Company

Shaping the Next Generation of Artists

“In a society that worships love, freedom, and beauty, dance is sacred. It is a prayer for the future, a remembrance of the past and a joyful exclamation of thanks for the present.”

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Thinking Forward

WoLF Studios intends to enhance the Milwaukee arts community by providing youth with quality, cross-genre dance education, and professional performance experience. The Youth Performance Company will support young dancers by educating them on the importance of self-care, both mentally and physically, while providing the tools for lifelong health and wellness.  In line with this vision, the performance company will build versatile dance artists and extend opportunities for artistic expansion for youth of all backgrounds, ethnicities and socio-economic classes.

Core Principles

Conditioning

Technique

Versatility

The body is the instrument of dance, and like any instrument it needs tuning, special care and maintenance to perform at its best.

Conditioning refers to the strengthening and preparation of the body for movement purposes. It can not be understated in the proper training of a dancer and the role it plays in the longevity of their career.

 

WoLF Studios is committed to providing young artists with an intense and extensive conditioning regimen. As part of our curriculum we address challenges such as depression, anxiety and stress using dance as a vehicle for expression.

Conditioning

Technique

Technique encompasses the fundamentals of movement and transcends the boundaries of style. It refers to the understanding of movement fundamentals from posture, muscles control, and movement aesthetic to hand/foot articulation.

Technique is essential in the cultivation of a fruitful arts career but also in injury prevention. At its core, technique is about moving in ways that maximize and preserve the body's movement potential.

WoLF Studios is dedicated to providing students with quality technique classes and training.

Progression and evolution are fundamental principles of the dance world. Styles change in popularity and prevalence, as such, it is essential that dancers are trained in multiple dance forms and are exposed to a variety of teaching styles.

Our company programming includes principle teachers in Afro-Fusion, Contemporary and Jazz. These styles are supplemented by movement forms ranging from Hip-hop to Aerial Silks, all designed to create a well rounded, versatile dancer capable of continued growth and development.
