The Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company, Inc. is a not-for-profit tax-exempt corporation founded to support and present the choreography of Artistic Director, Ellen Sinopoli. As the resident company of The Egg in Albany, ESDC strives to engage both dance aficionados and the uninitiated into the world of modern dance. ESDC programs include concerts; lecture/ demonstrations; open rehearsals; master classes in modern dance, jazz and ballet technique and arts-in-education workshops and performances.

Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company invites contributors, both individual and corporate at all levels to visit the studio, meet the Artistic Director and dancers, and sit in on actual, working rehearsals. We also invite you to purchase tickets to our next performance and join us for an unforgettable evening of dance.

All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law. We are deeply grateful and thank you for supporting ESDC!

We are deeply grateful to our patrons whose support allows us to continue our education residencies at Abram Lansing Elementary School in Cohoes and three elementary schools in Gloversville for the 2023-2024 school year.
