ECDC is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization. We depend on the support of our community to make the magic happen!


Volunteer. If you have ever been to an ECDC production after the curtain has gone down on the evening, you know that we like to clear the theater as a team, usually with great music thumping in the background and jokes thrown across the room. ECDC volunteers are the life of the party and the heartbeat of our organization. If you are ever inclined to lend a hand, we are always grateful for production assistance, fundraiser support, and more. Please email to get involved!

Lead. ECDC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are fabulous, dedicated arts supporters. They lend their talents, time and expertise to lead ECDC and keep the community dancing. If you are interested in board service, we want to talk to you. Please send an email of inquiry along with your résumé to, and we will be in touch.
