The Minnesota Dance Ensemble is a non-profit adult modern jazz dance company located in Central Minnesota.
Since the birth of MDE, we have continuously been a growing force within the Central Minnesota community and this year is no different. With MDE's 14th season under way, we are excited that the company continues to have a broad base of support.
Our 14th annual production, Carmen, will be held on April 28th, 2017 at the Paramount Center for the Arts in St. Cloud. Carmen is the classic story of a love triangle gone horribly wrong- a sultry and intriguing, yet humorous tale that audiences have fallen in love with for over a century. The opera was originally performed in 1875, and has beguiled and entranced audiences for over 140 years. Minnesota Dance Ensemble's version of Carmen brings this classic up to date, mixing the original operatic score with current popular hits, as well as some classical ballet technique alongside modern dance movement.
