On the surface, Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble (CDE) resembles a lot of other companies presenting work and hosting arts education programming. So, what makes us different? Our mission and our heart! CDE dedicates every season to providing Chicagoland audiences with socially conscious performances and educational programs. We call it, "performance with a purpose."
On the production side, we house a robust company of Actors, Dancers, Writers, Directors, Visual Artists and Production staff premiering original multimedia works for the stage each season. That same robust company also serve as our Teaching Artists to bring one-of-kind experiences to the over 5,000 students we work with each year. Not only do we aim to enlighten and uplift our audiences, we aim to plant a seed that transforms into something much grander.
That is purpose.
