The Dartmouth Dance Ensemble is a professionally led performance group devoted to showcasing the talent of Dartmouth College students, staff and community members in the work of established choreographers.

Director John Heginbotham and Choreographer-in-Residence Rebecca Stenn, both based out of NYC, offer training in ballet and contemporary dance techniques, multiple performance opportunities throughout the academic year and the chance to experience a breadth of dance styles and content.
