(AP) — The Delaware Institute for the Arts in Education has a new director.

The News Journal reported on Thursday the Institute recently named one of its teachers as the artistic director.

Ashley SK Davis has been a teaching artist for DIAE since 2008. The choreographer and actor earned a bachelor’s in philosophy at Spelman College in Atlanta. She’s also the executive and artistic director of Delaware-based dance company Pieces of a Dream, Inc.

Most recently she was a director for a University of Delaware production examining the black experience in the U.S. and South Africa.
