Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays! A time to be near your loved ones and feel gratitude for everything you have in your life. Eclectic Edge Ensemble has many things to be thankful for this year! First of all, we are truly thankful for our supporters! Cheers to those that have been a part of our audience during the past 13 seasons! Thank you for supporting us by coming to our shows, taking our classes and helping us raise funds. We are also very grateful for our board members who help guide the vision of our company- thank you for your continued time, support, and wisdom!
Secondly, we are thankful for our incredible dancers and collaborators, our tech and design staff, including Julia Carlis who has been designing the majority of Karis’ shows since 1999 (yes you read that right!) as well as our rehearsal space at Ballare Teatro Performing Arts Center! Without these elements we wouldn't be able to continue the work we do. Eclectic Edge Ensemble is a family of dancers and musicians that create, imagine, and restage dance pieces. We couldn't do anything without the people involved and we are grateful for their creativity, artistry, and expertise!
Third, we are thankful for the opportunity and ability to share our passion and love for dance in the Twin Cities. Our talented artists and teachers love to pour their knowledge into the community. With that said- we are very excited about the future of our outreach program!
Finally, EEE's bright future compels us give thanks! As we look ahead, we are enthusiastic about all that we have planned. We approach this upcoming performance season with renewed energy to keep jazz and rhythm based dances alive in the Twin Cities. Thank you to all who have supported us, past and present, and we hope you will continue by attending this seasons performances.
From the bottom of all of our hearts, Happy Thanksgiving!
