“I was there on day one when Dean opened the doors, and ACA was born. Over 30 years later, the centre is stronger than ever and expanding. Dean and the staff ensure the creative culture is alive in every studio and the risk, courage and support it takes to develop one’s artistry is always on call. As someone who has forged an international career and worked for the leading mainstage artistic companies, ACA
stands in an uncompromising tier of elite world-leading creative hubs. I’m proud to share my skills and insights and also proud to be an Ambassador.”
