Community outreach is central to Wild Space's mission of expanding the audience for contemporary dance. To achieve this goal, Wild Space offers the community-based site-specific initiative Neighborhood Sites and outreach programs for under-served young people.
Wild Space outreach programs expand students' understanding of dance, visual art and physical fitness, encouraging self-discipline, ciritical thinking and self-confidence. A company-in-residence at Lincoln Center Middle School of the Arts in Milwaukee in Appleton, Wild Space has worked with more than 70 Milwaukee Public Schools sites over the past three decades. Wild Space is proud to be a cultural partner with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's Project ACE and works with Milwaukee Publc School afterschool programs.
Workshop and residencies are flexible, including single workshops, multi-week residencies, lecture demonstrations and performances by the company and students. Wild Space reaches more than 4,000 young people and adults through its outreach programs each year.
