Realize Your Dream is a collaboration of experiential programming that uses performing arts to spark and enrich inspiration-built upon the traditions and legacy of the Kids From Wisconsin. This is a constant evolution and intersection for teachers and learners, where workshops, residences and classroom sessions are designed for all age groups and ability levels.

Residencies

We created free residency programs which offer high energy and interactive sessions for all ages, built by professional teaching artists that collaborate in all forms of the performing arts.

About Our Residencies

Residencies have proven to be an integral component, to either supplement or enhance, a curriculum in a classroom or extracurricular setting. Our trained professional teaching artists assist students to find their purpose and importance; whether to become an appreciator or spark them to further their discoveries in performing arts.

Music With My Friends

Inspiring middle to high school students to develop and showcase their performing attributes, Music With My Friends teaches positive and inspirational vocals,  challenging choreography, and collaborative coaching -all wrapped in a high energy team building atmosphere. All abilities are welcome to this program,  that focuses on showcasing the performers in a safe space,  while also giving individual opportunities to those that want to shine and step out of their comfort zone .

Music In Me

Created for youth that have little to no access to music education or appreciation in an elementary classroom, Music In Me opens open the door to the importance of music in their life. This uses interactive tools from all performing arts angles and tapping on core standards implemented by the Wisconsin Music Educators Association.  The class ends with a final performance showcase,  leaving them empowered with the ability to connect to their community with music understanding.

Workshops

During our summer tour, we invite youth 7-14 to a free performing arts workshop.

During this 1-hour session, participants have a choice to hang with the band to create their own music composition or learn portions of the choreography from the show with the singers and dancers.

 

After a showcase of their work, the troupe engages a reflection and inspirional talkback session where everyone shares and celebrates their love of performing.

 
 

Arts Spotlight

Arts Spotlight will introduce arts programing, performances and more from your own community to those seeking fall/winter opportunities for their children or themselves. Let's all get creative!

Celebrate the arts with us at an Arts Spotlight and see out what your community has to offer.

At Home

When the world became virtual, we found ways to have our Kids connect with our communities. At Home was created to give our fans a look behind the curtain and get tips, tricks and everything in-between straight from our Kids themselves.
