Eisenhower Dance Detroit

Eisenhower Dance Detroit’s tagline encapsulates the organization’s mission: Innovate, Cultivate, Inspire! Founding Artistic Director, Laurie Eisenhower established Eisenhower Dance Ensemble, a professional repertory company based in metro Detroit, in 1991. Following Ms. Eisenhower’s retirement, the board of directors and new Artistic Director, Stephanie Pizzo, modified the organization’s name to become Eisenhower Dance Detroit. The company’s mission aims “to be a professional repertory company that, through outstanding performances and educational services, strives to deepen the understanding and appreciation of contemporary dance regionally, nationally, and internationally.” Moreover, under the artistic leadership of Ms. Pizzo, EDD works to use the art of contemporary dance both as a means to present beautiful, athletic, and engaging repertory and as a vehicle to reflect on and explore issues of social justice.

La Compagnie Musical Dance Troupe

Since 2007, La Compagnie Musical Dance Troupe has paid tribute to Michigan’s French, Celtic and Maritime cultural heritage with music, dance, stories and narration. We like to entertain and educate, but our classroom is the concert hall, reenactor’s tent or dance floor. Audiences of all ages are treated to a ‘voice, hands and feet’ experience set to Michigan’s musical beginnings. Sing along, join in a dance, laugh at a tall tale or just sit back and relax. La Compagnie has something for everyone. We welcome the opportunity to design a program around a theme just for you!

Pure Existence

Created, directed, and choreographed by Jodie Randolph Paralleled Dissonance is an evening-length work developed in collaboration with Pure Existence dancers and original score by Andrew Harness. The work questions the undeniable tensions in our world through the subject of interpersonal conflict. Innate opposition becomes the source of investigation, offering a deep reflection of the polarity within ourselves. Our complicated need for human connection is countered by the wars that ensue between nations, between people, and ultimately within. A contrast between the individual versus the collective questions the boundary between self and other.
