The Comtemporary Dance Ensemble is the Department of Theatre and Dance's resident dance company. The group produces one mainstage dance concert a year, typically in the early spring semester. The ensemble develops its programming with attention to the diversity within the dance field, as well as within its viewing audience. The goal is to welcome, embrace, educate and inspire those who see it and those who dance it.
