Actress, director, instructor and arts activist Ami Sallee has been named theater chair of the Patel Conservatory at the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts! We are lucky to have Ami in our community.
Ami's passion for the arts in Tampa Bay is inspiring. She has been a force in local theater for years and even started up a nonprofit to get different divisions in the arts (visual, performing, etc) working together to make the art world here stronger.
At the Patel Conservatory alone, Ami has served on the faculty since the school’s inaugural year and has been a part of the operational team since its inception, helping to create the Patel Chairmen’s Library, developing the Access Arts Scholarship program and cultivating the Patel Conservatory Youth Theater program.
