Academy for the Performing Arts

Organization Type

Here at APA, we strive to provide a creative environment for learning and growing through the art of dance. Through the many disciplines of dance, children build self-confidence, can become more assertive and learn leadership skills that will help them prepare for their futures. We highly individualize programs by maintaining small classes and a high teacher-to-student ratio, allowing every student to be seen and heard. Classes offered include 3-6 Year Old Pre-Dance Classes, Adult Only Classes, Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and more!

Dance Classes

As well as traditional classes, we offer Pre-Dance Classes for our youngest students to prepare them for Tap, Ballet and Jazz. By teaching them the fundamentals of dance, in a fun atmosphere with enjoyable music and props, we have found that many more three and four-year-old students return to dance for another year.?? Also, when they do return, we try our best to place them in a class with other second-year dancers. We do this to ensure that your child will advance each year with other students of the same skill level, rather than be held back by new students constantly entering the class.
