The Center Dance Ensemble
Center Dance Ensemble was founded in 1988 with the dual mission of creating original works of the highest artistic quality and designing arts education opportunities and programs for students throughout the Valley. In the 28 years since, we have created more than 80 original works. And we are proud to be generally recognized as the premier modern dance company in Arizona, with many of the other local dance companies, choreographers and dancers having roots in CDE.
