The Ace Ensemble is an interdisciplinary program for dancers, ages 7-18, to bring the joy of dance out into the Bay Area community and beyond. We thrive on crafting artistically driven work that challenges our dancers to become better technicians and emotionally expressive individuals while bringing a smile to the face of our audiences. In addition to competition, we also participate in our local parade, dance at theme parks, and perform for retirement communities. Our aim is to continue to cultivate confidence, integrity, artistry, and community building with our dancers so they grow to be well rounded, compassionate people who continually strive for excellence in all aspects of life.

To dance is to be out of yourself.
