ACE youth stories // Where are they now?

Two of our ACE youth graduates recently came back to visit and catch up with old friends here at ACE space. Grace and Zoe are now both at university. Grace is studying Politics at the University of Hull and Zoe is studying Dance and Performance at Falmouth University.


Grace developed an interest in dance at a young age when she says that a friend was too shy to attend a dance audition on her own. Grace tagged along to support her friend and ended up being offered a place in a dance class. From there she went on to study Dance at A level and also achieved the Gold Arts Award.

Zoe is a keen photographer who aspires to become a professional dancer and perhaps one day own her own touring dance company. She has a passion for Hip Hop dance and also practices contemporary and Ballet whilst studying for her degree.

From being in ACE youth both say that they learned discipline, strength and stamina with Zoe commenting that when she arrived at University ACE dance and music had prepared her for working in a professional environment and she was ready to jump right in.
