Don’t miss our big benefit event, The Dance of Hearts – a Fanciful Dance!  This Saturday night, February 6th.

Founded in 1997, the mission of the Evanston Dance Ensemble is to deepen the exposure to and appreciation of, dance for highly talented and committed young performers and diverse audiences in the greater Chicago area.

In residence at Dance Center Evanston, the Ensemble performs several productions each year. EDE is known for its inventive treatment of stories and themes and collaborating with top professionals in the field to create original productions.

The Ensemble also extends its involvement into the community with its second company, ede2, which tours its own original shows to schools, libraries, and senior centers throughout the North Shore.
