HeatWave is a show choir founded in 1991 as a positive outlet and educational opportunity for 4-H youth in Rock County.  HeatWave exists to teach performance skills and develop talent; to encourage cooperation and creativity; to expand and demonstrate leadership and communication skills; and to promote Rock County 4-H and the Performing Arts.

Every year HeatWave has approximately 30 members representing 4-H clubs from across Rock County.  The group is open to anyone in 7th grade and up who is enrolled in the Rock County 4-H program.  We accept all youth who have an interest.  Our only prerequisite is enthusiasm and a commitment to hard work.   We do not hold auditions.

HeatWave members are creative, cooperative youth who work well within a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and skills.  They are an integral part of all aspects of the group.  Member involvement includes:

  • Choreography

  • Vocal development

  • Sound

  • Fundraising

  • Costume design and prop building

HeatWave is supported entirely by contributions from members, their families, 4-H organizations, and other generous individuals.  HeatWave has several fundraising events each year.  Donations of any size are accepted, appreciated, and greatly needed for sound equipment, costumes, props, and other needs.  If you wish to contribute, contact Lisabeth Kasprzak at 608-352-1355.  Because 4-H is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization, donations to HeatWave are tax deductible.  Please make checks payable to HeatWave.
