Recent political developments in Indiana

  • The AACE staff is extremely troubled by the recent developments in Indiana. We understand that this has caused heated discussions around attending our convention. This proposed law is not consistent with the way AACE does business. We are a totally inclusive group as is displayed by our diverse staff.

    When we planned the convention in Indiana, we certainly were not aware that any of this would happen. To change or alter plans now - ahead of the law's implementation - would result in an unfair burden to those dancers with travel arrangements already planned and paid, as well as the contractual liability of the organization. Keeping things in place for this year in no way diminishes our resolve to relocate our event should Indiana solidify its support of discrimination.

    It is our goal to maintain the diversity of our recreation with dignity and with pride!
