The Forsythe Company is a dance ensemble of eighteen dancers based in Dresden, Germany. It was founded in 2005[1] by William Forsythe following the closure of the Frankfurt Ballet. The ensemble further pursues the creative work carried out for 20 years with Ballett Frankfurt, including producing works in the areas of performance, installation, film, and educational media.

The Forsythe Company is supported by a unique public-private partnership including the German states of Saxony and Hesse, the cities of Dresden and Frankfurt am Main, and private sponsors. The ensemble is Company-in-Residence of both the Festspielhaus Hellerau in Dresden and the Bockenheimer Depot in Frankfurt am Main.

In 2015, the creative directorship of The Forsythe Company was taken over by Jacopo Godani under a new name "The Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company".
