BIG NEWS for Fall!

Hi folks,

It's almost time for Acme's new semester to begin and we have some big news...

We are thrilled to let you know that Acme will be expanding this fall, adding on a new space next door!! We are about 90% of the way done, working on the final touches over the next few weeks. Though we are not yet ready for an official ribbon cutting, scheduled ensembles and classes will be able to meet in the new space. Info on a Grand Opening celebration TBA.

In the meantime, may we introduce you to:
