After the GYB acting training survey and subsequent conference in 2019 we encouraged the industry to create an association for acting coaches and educators to help bring oversight, best practices and community to the acting training environment in all it’s forms.
The Association of Acting Coaches and Educators (AACE) started by gathering together concerned industry partners, knowledgeable and dedicated educators and students from the community. A steering committee was built with representatives from; ACTRA, CAEA, The CDC, UBCP/ACTRA, The EIC, TAMAC, GYB, Keep Actors Safe, Acting in Good Company, Schools/Studios, coaches and educators who created an industry code of Code of Conduct, AACE Member guide and Application process. The creation of AACE will help bring oversight and best practices to the sector for students and parents, but it will also create a much needed community where coaches and educators can learn, share and grow together.
Got Your Back is proud of this incredible movement forward to making acting training safer and more respectful for everyone.
