About Us

 

Eclectic Edge Ensemble (EEE) is a contemporary jazz dance company with a diverse repertoire, collaborating with local musicians, choreographers, and other artists to create musically and theatrically inspired work. We present a fresh perspective on jazz dance in the Twin Cities by creating accessible performance experiences that connect to audiences through the joy of movement.

 

Our Vision

  • Breathing life into jazz dance: One of the only jazz dance companies in the Twin Cities, Eclectic Edge Ensemble moves the jazz tradition forward within our local dance community while forging our own signature style.
  • Musical collaboration: An important part of EEE's vision is to encourage the practice of collaboration, particularly between musicians and dancers. We feel that creating dance alongside original music allows the two art forms to merge together in the most organic way possible.
  • A company that lives up to its name: we are eclectic in the make-up of our company members, in who we collaborate with and in the kinds of pieces we create. By promoting variety we keep our performances fresh and keep challenging ourselves artistically.
