The original group, Orchesis (a name which means "dance arts" in Latin), was sponsored and organized in 1948 by Norma Rae Arrington. Over the next thirty years, directors and advisors of the group included Shirlene Oswald, Maida Rust, Karen Grimmett, Diane Chatwin, Gerrie Glover, Shirley Ririe, Robert Opliphant, Sara Lee Gibb, and Dee Winterton.

In 1976, Orchesis combined with the Modern Dance Ensemble, a similar dance group at BYU, and remained under the name Orchesis. In 1980, Orchesis officially became DancEnsemble, and was under the direction of Cathy Black.
