Ellensburg Dance Ensemble 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 in all dance styles.

Come dance with us!

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.

Ellensburg Dance Ensemble, formerly Central Washington Dance Ensemble, is the only non-profit dance company in the region and we operate The Studio as a non-profit as well. We gladly and gratefully accept donations and supplies, and we welcome volunteers to join our Board of Directors.
