Ace Ensemble

The Ensemble Program is designed to give students additional performance opportunities throughout the year. We are a loving and supportive community of dancers, parents, and faculty. Dancers cast into the Ensemble are required to take multiple classes during the week and attend weekly rehearsal to bring their dance training to the next level. Ensemble performers also represent Ace Dance Academy as positive role models throughout the community. Placement and casting into the Ensemble is by audition only and at the discretion of the directors. The Ace Ensemble includes our thriving Solo/Duo/Trio Program for dancers who wish to focus on solos or competing in smaller groups. Auditions take place each year in the spring. We are thrilled to have a fun-filled Ensemble Program that nurtures our dancers' artistry and excellence in a supportive team atmosphere.

To dance is to be out of yourself.
Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.
