Since its inception, AACE has been actively engaging in community service. AACE has been working with local Chicago dance companies/schools to organize vigorous Chinese and western dance training for children who have a passion for Asian and Chinese arts. In addition, AACE allows American born Chinese teenage dancers to experience the culture. These talented young artists have proudly shared this cultural gem with a large variety of audiences through their frequent out-reaches and performances.
