Vision Dance Theatre Auditions

Friday, June 7, 2019

5:00 - 7:00 pm

Vision Dance Theatre, under the guidance and direction of Anne Marie Abderholden, provides pre-professional dance training and performance opportunities for qualified dancers across North-Eastern Wisconsin. 

 Vision Dance Theatre is a self-governing organization with a board made up of its members; providing them with an opportunity to guide the direction of the company including choice of educational, leadership and service opportunities.  Community outreach is a significant part of Vision Dance Theatre’s mission and goes far beyond dance performance.  Company members have an opportunity to connect with and inspire their audience through interactive engagement.

With their rigorous rehearsal schedule, company members are given an opportunity to develop self-discipline, resilience, self-motivation along with a healthy work-life balance. As proof of this many company dancers are involved in a wide variety of activities outside of dance.  Additionally, all company members have achieved the academic excellence required for entry into the National Honor Society for Dance.

Past Vision Dance Theatre members have been awarded university scholarships for academics and dance; have been invited to study and perform with world-renowned dance companies; and have gone on to serve their communities through social leadership.

Funky Figure Drawing Gathering for Adults - Third Thursdays

Third Thursdays

6:00 - 9:00 pm

Valley Academy for the Arts is starting Funky Figure Drawing in 2019 on the third Thursday of each month.  These sessions will be fun, laid back and unlike most other drawing events you have been to before. Our model will be clothed in garish and/or beautiful attire.  This attire (along with carefully selected props) is bound to set the mood in the story you are about to create on your media.

This will be a fun, non-instructional session in which poses will generally range from 1 minute to 35 minutes long.  Bring pencils, charcoal, paint, a camera, pastels, a hunk of linoleum and a linocutter…. Heck, we’d admire you for strolling in with an Etch-a-Sketch!   Just bring whatever you’d like to create with. Enjoy the time spent with your fellow artists, making art and listening to some funky beats!

We will be creating from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. From 8-9pm we will enjoy a time for socializing, sharing current art opportunities and optional show-off/critique.  At VAA, we strive to promote the arts in all types and skill levels, so all adults are welcome!

Cost is $14 per person.   Pre-registration required. Registration will be open until noon of the day of the event. Refunds will only be given if class is cancelled.


Valley Academy for the Arts is a 501c3 nonprofit.  15% of every Funky Figure Drawing admission goes to providing future scholarships at Valley Academy for the Arts.
