The first session on Tuesday, September 3 will focus on Salsa and the second on Monday, September 9 will focus on Hip-Hop. Move your body to the beats of West Side Story with some of the top dance professionals in the area!

Registration required! Call 414.286.3011 or visit mpl.org/gasp. All participants will be be given a discount code for tickets to West Side Story running September 17- October 27, 2019.

This program is a part of Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Puerto Rican Identity: A Conversation Series. This series, inspired by the musical West Side Story, takes place in community spaces and explores, examines, and celebrates the Puerto Rican diaspora with a focus on the city of Milwaukee. The Rep will offer conversations on different aspects of identity including the arts, migration, and a sense of belonging.
