Dartmouth Dance Ensemble

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.

Since its inception in 1999, the Dartmouth Dance Ensemble has created close to 50 works, collaborated with Upper Valley and NYC-based musicians, hosted masterclasses by award-winning artists and participated in performance tours to Costa Rica and New Zealand.

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.
