Elm City Dance Collective is a New Haven based organization that provides a platform for an experiential and collaborative approach to dance creation, education and performance. Elm City Dance Collective (ECDC) began in 2008 as a conversation between four dance artists in the New Haven area. Lindsey Bauer, Jennifer Brubacher, Kellie Ann Lynch and Emilia VandenBroek envisioned an organization that would offer classes in a variety of movement forms, as well as choreographic and performance opportunities for New Haven dance artists. In addition, the founders discussed a shared commitment to building a contemporary dance community. The mission, vision, and goals of ECDC took shape over the summer of 2008. ECDC is a collective by way of leadership, a company that integrates aspects of a variety of organizational models. ECDC's approach to growing and building community involves disciplinary fluidity and community partnerships.
