​Our Story 


Northeastern Wisconsin Dance Organization was created in 1973 in response to community interest to support dance in Northeast Wisconsin. We work collaboratively to provide dance performance opportunities to local aspiring dancers and students in local venues.

NEWDO is a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 Wisconsin corporation comprised of community members intent on providing quality experiences for performers and audience members. Classical dance provides tradition and beauty, provokes thought, entertains, and ties communities together. It is our continued goal to provide these benefits to Northeastern Wisconsin.
