Minnesota Dance Ensemble was founded in 2003 by Laura Dvorak and Megan Rogholt. The company was created in an effort to provide an artistic outlet for adult dancers in the community to perform and create dance works post high school and college dance training. Company members perform in the styles of modern and jazz in and around Central Minnesota, as well as touring throughout the Midwest. MDE calls the Paramount Theatre in St. Cloud, MN it's home and is very lucky to have such a supportive arts community. The ensemble hopes to continue expanding their audience base by providing entertainment and dance education throughout the region.
MDE received their 501(c)3 accreditation in January 2007.
