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 produces a mainstage production every year, with works ranging from story ballets, to book adaptations, to stylistically diverse compilations. In addition, EDE performs at many venues throughout the Chicagoland area, including Dance Chicago, the Evanston Public Library, and with the Evanston Symphony Orchestra.
