The Vissi Dance Theater was founded in 1997 by dancer/choreographer Courtney Ffrench. Vissi dancers come from all over the world and bring with them their cultural diversity and unique perspective on artistry. The style of dance can be described as urban contemporary, a spirited combination of all forms including, but not limited to, jazz, modern (Dunham), West African, funk and ballet.

The Vissi Dance Theater has performed at the TriBeCa Theater at BMCC, Aaron Davis Hall, New Rochelle Library Theater, Old Westbury College, American Theater of Actors, Theater for a New City, Educational Alliance Theater, Theater at Riverside Church, Hempstead Museum, Hostos College, Harry De Jur Playhouse, New York City Center and Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center.

The Collin Dance Ensemble, the resident performing company for Collin College, is a vibrant company that performs innovative contemporary modern dance. Under the direction of Tiffanee Arnold, Collin Dance Ensemble’s goal is to produce dance works at the highest level of artistic excellence. The company tours throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area, performing in local concerts and festivals. The dance company attends and performs at the American College Dance Festival annually and has been selected for the Gala Performance at the regional festivals six times.

Collin Dance Ensemble hosts Dance Fusion, an annual dance event featuring professional dance companies. These invited artists and companies perform with CDE to expose students and the community to various dance styles and dance companies.
