Lives Taking Shape

ede2 presents
On Your Mark....

You’re invited to game night!


ede2 is proud to present On Your Mark… an energetic dance concert celebrating your favorite childhood games. From recess to make believe, card games to musical chairs, you will relive the games that brought you joy, laughter and serious competition. Follow the dancers as they travel through a day full of games - from the school yard monkey bars to the family game night around the table to the spooky fun played during a late-night sleepover.


Led by Artistic Director Rachel Molinaro, assistant director Erin Bates,

and an amazing roster of choreographers, On Your Mark…  welcomes you to

pick your teams, set up the board and PLAY!

Saturday March 25 @ 3:30pm

Sunday March 26 @ 1:30pm and 3:30pm

Founded in 1997, the mission of the Evanston Dance Ensemble is to create inventive performances and programs of the highest quality, nurture the power and artistry of talented young dancers, and reflect the diversity of our community by fostering inclusivity, collaboration, and creative expression.


In residence at Dance Center Evanston, the Ensemble performs several productions each year. EDE is known for its innovative treatment of stories and themes and collaborating with top professionals in the field to create original productions.


The Ensemble also extends its involvement into the community with its second company, ede2, which tours its own original shows to schools, libraries, and senior centers throughout the North Shore.

Evanston Dance Ensemble is also a proud member of EPAC - The Evanston Performing Arts Collective.
