ACE dance and music is a national touring company and registered charity based in the UK.
We are an internationally recognised leader in the field of Contemporary African and Caribbean Dance. Our signature style is Afro-fusion – dance which is rooted in traditional forms yet expressed through a purely contemporary lens. By combining African & Caribbean movement aesthetics with contemporary techniques we create high quality innovative performance – always combining dance with original music and often using new digital media and techniques from other disciplines including theatre. We offer a full range of bespoke education and outreach programmes; deliver in-house studio based dance classes, and play host to ACE Youth – our youth dance company, with its own independent reputation for excellence. Education and outreach is not an add-on, it’s integral to our work.
ACE attract young audiences as well as dance enthusiasts. Audiences nationally and internationally have been blown away by our work. The physicality, technicality, engagement and artistic quality leave our audiences wanting more… ACE dance and music are funded by Arts Council England.
Ace dance and music is striving towards equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
