Pacific Arts Complex is thrilled to announce that after over a year of planning we will be expanding our program to Monterey County! We will be bringing on new staff and instructors including Ashley Rutherford and Amanda Casas who will be our company directors in our new location. We have known Ashley and Amanda for years, and could not be more excited to bring them into our family. Ashley was trained by Tisha from the time she was 5 years old. Amanda has been working hand in hand with Ashley as a Co-Director for years. 

 We feel so blessed to have connected with the wonderful dance community in the greater Monterey area, and have begun a partnership with SpectorDance to build a new program in Monterey County. We know this is happening at a very strange time for the world. Many dance communities have been hit hard by the recent events and through a series of lucky conversations and chance meetings, we connected with Fran Spector Atkins, founder and artistic director of SpectorDance. To say our connection was instant would be an understatement. To learn more about SpectorDance and all their wonderful programs visit them at:
