As the most established and well-respected non-profit dance company in the region EDE has an essential role in keeping the local arts scene vibrant and alive. We are lucky to have some of the best and brightest artists and educators providing the community with quality dance instruction and performances.
EDE is Central Washington’s premiere dance company. We foster excellence in all forms of dance and instill in our dancers the enthusiasm and desire to share their passion with the local community. Dancers in the ensemble learn and perform works by hired choreographers, collaborate with guest professional dancers, and participate in a wide range of high caliber dance performances.
The Studio by EDE is our educational outreach facility in Kittitas County. We offer dance and movement classes for all ages – from Pre-K to Adult, with the bulk of our students in the K-12 age range.
The EDE dance company also creates and presents multiple performances each year including the largest performance of The Nutcracker in Central Washington. We work closely with Central Washington University and their dance and theatre programs, hire their students to teach classes, and hire them on choreography and artistic direction for our shows.
