The EDE Center for Dance opened its doors in the summer of 1995. The Center serves as a base for the nationally-touring professional dance company, Eisenhower Dance Ensemble, whose mission includes community outreach and education programs. The EDE Center for Dance aims to foster the appreciation of dance as an art form by providing the highest quality instruction to students of any age. The Center sets itself apart from other dance schools by offering classes taught by former and current professional dancers, along with a staff of highly skilled, degreed instructors. With anatomically sound training and a focus on artistry rather than competition, the EDE Center stands out as the premiere dance facility in the Detroit Metro area. The school?s carefully structured curriculum emphasizes the student?s creative and artistic development as well as technical proficiency. Individually planned classes focus on the distinctive needs of both professional and non-professional dancers. The school offers a positive, nurturing atmosphere appropriate for all levels and ages from children to adults.
