Day 2 of EEE's Flip Your Refund drive. Thank you for donations that have already come in! For the next 3 DAYS we will focus on raising funds for our 4 guest composers for this summer's production of "First Nights of a Foot Flight." Please help EEE raise $800 to support these incredible artists!

We recently closed Snow Bound! celebrating the 5th Anniversary since its creation, and we are beyond proud of our final product. Bringing together 21 performers from EEE and Mad Munchkin Production, 5 local composer, five technical designers, we were able to bring a very magical show to The Lab Theater. We also reached out to the community with our Youth Winter Poetry competition where we had over 80 submissions and had 15 students read their poems live at one of our performances of Snow Bound.
EEE is honored to be a Guest Resident for The Southern Theater's 2016 ArtShare Program!
July 21st-24th, 2016 EEE presents First Nights of a Foot Flight at the Southern Theater. First Nights will be an evening of jazz dance sure to make you want to move! Accompanied by newly composed music, the evening will include concert works by Sloss, guest choreographer Kaleena Miller, and a preview of Sloss' future evening length work - an adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Not to be missed, this preview is a story filled with magic, mystery, betrayal, and...a monkey!
First Nights of a Foot Flight
July 21st-24th, 2016 @ The SOUTHERN
EEE is honored to be a Guest Resident for The Southern Theater's ArtShare Program!
We closed our 2014-15 season with “Lost Voices in Jazz -The Choreographers of the Minnesota Jazz Dance Company." We were grateful to be a part of such a historic performance, and were honored with a Sage Award for Outstanding Dance Performance! This is the first nomination and award for EEE and we are grateful to be recognized by our dance community. We hope to continue to build off of this momentum and are looking for you support.
We are looking to expand our Outreach efforts this year, with the goal to be actively engaged with multiple dance studios, schools, community centers and/or organizations and within our local dance community through our 2016 season via classes, workshops, intensives and lectures/demonstrations. Your donation can help us continue to extend our reach, providing valuable and necessary funding to bring movement-based education to at-risk and under-served populations.
What People Are Saying
“There aren't many dance companies whose mission it is to bring the artistic vision of one person to life. But Eclectic Edge Ensemble is such a troupe.” - Rob Hubbard, Pioneer Press 7/14/2013
“As a teacher and choreographer, Karis Sloss is the "real deal" - someone with a knowledge of dance, music and theater that honors the forms' histories and moves them into the present with skill, passion and insight." - Danny Buraczeski, Twin Cities jazz dance legend
