Children's Dance Ensembleis the resident pre-professional performing company of Dance Workshop of Hanover. Founded in 1987 by Marylou Cunningham, CDE is comprised of talented student dancers aged 13-18 under the direction of Noreen MacDonald.
Our company has staged a full length production of The Nutcracker Ballet since 1990. In addition to our past Spring Benefit Performances, from which the proceeds have benefited various charitable organizations, CDE has performed annually at the Cardinal Cushing Center in Hanover, MA, The Linden Ponds Retirement Community in Hingham, MA and The Southern Artery Retirement Community in Quincy.
Since 2014, The Linden Ponds Performing Arts Center in Hingham, MA, has been kind enough to request our full traveling production of "The Nutcracker Ballet", as well as, "Palace of Sweets." CDE and members of the DWH Dance Team have had the opportunity to perform throughout the New England area and to study with guest artists both at our Hanover studios and at traveling events.
We are happy to entertain communities at various events. Please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about our traveling performances! Thank you!
