ABOUT

Dance Theatre of Orlando

The Orlando-based ME Dance Company announced today it is officially changing its name to Dance Theatre of Orlando. The beloved dance troupe, founded in 2011, is expanding through the new year and the name change is a reflection of that growth. The company’s original, full-length dance productions will also transform into more robust, fleshed-out stories designed to captivate and intrigue audiences of all ages.

“The new name for ME Dance will bring forth a new era for the dance company,” says Marshall Ellis, founder and artistic director of ME Dance, Inc. and Dance Theatre of Orlando. “With a new name, expect a whole new set of artistic works and expression. The dance company will continue to present its usual full-length productions for each season, but these productions will be edgier – they will incorporate new elements of dance, new innovative technology and, above all, they will focus on engaging stories.”
