ACE is a performance opportunity for students wanting the excitement and thrill of performing in a competition setting for judges’ critique and learning additional choreography. Dancers may compete 4-8 dances, based on level. Ensemble students must take a minimum of classes weekly to participate: ballet, lyrical and modern, plus their assigned ACE class and maintain excellent attendance throughout the entire year in ALL their classes. 2 regional competitions will be attended in 2019. These competitions will be in the greater Cincinnati area and are scheduled for weekends in February and March. Dancers of levels 5-7 are allowed to join ACE. Admittance is through conference with the director only. Dancers may be invited directly, and if they have NOT been invited, they may ask for a conference. Our ACE dancers become as strong as they are BECAUSE of the extra dancing through this program, so don’t be afraid you’re not good enough to join ACE! JUST ASK TO JOIN!
