AACE in the News (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne)

It is with deep regret that we have decided to cancel AACE 2021. This was to be our 20th anniversary, and we wanted it to be a really big event. However, we've weighed the impact of this global pandemic and the uncertainties of planning into the future and have come to the conclusion that we are unable to assure dancers a safe experience. We know this will come as a disappointment to many of you as it does for us.

Our decisions have been made with the best interest of the square dance community in mind, prioritizing the health and safety of the dancers and callers above all else.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the patience and grace you have offered over the last couple of months.

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and each other. We hope that you remain healthy and find ways to stay happy off the dance floor.

Sincerely yours,
AACE Staff
