What an exciting time for us! The ladies at ACE have been quite busy lately. In addition to our normal tasks, each member of the ACE staff has been packing, packing, and more packing! It is an exhilarating phase for us – and you will soon see why.
If you haven’t heard – or seen the construction – SCTI is undergoing many constructional changes and enhancements to the campus. ACE is greatly benefiting from it…and you can soon say good-bye to the portables! Throughout the month of June, and in time for the upcoming Fall semester, we will be in the moving process to relocate to Building 3 on the SCTI campus. The space dedicated to ACE is sure to impress – even I continue to be amazed at the state-of-the-art classrooms and studios that our courses will be held in.
We are also quite excited about one of our new teachers – Robert de Warren. Among many other accomplishments, Robert’s repertoire includes being the Head of the National Ballet of Iran, the Artistic Director of the Northern Ballet in England, and the Director of Ballet at La Scala Milan. Eventually, he found his way to Sarasota and is currently the President of the Sarasota International Dance Festival. Robert is renowned for his high degree of professionalism, his ability to establish and evolve ballet organizations, and his passion for the art of dancing. Based off of his experience and caliber, we are sure to have an outstanding Ballet Appreciation class that takes advantage of our new dance studio.

We will have many other exciting new offerings worthy of our new building. Stay tuned!
