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 as well as the Pre-Professional Program for dancers who wish to focus on a specific goal of professional dance training. Auditions take place each year in the spring. Our greater dance community is striving to provide many types of opportunities at this time, including in-person, virtual live stream, and video submissions. We are thrilled to continue with a fun-filled Ensemble Program in our ever-changing world!

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