Why we do it

Arts education is a big part of building a 21st century creative mind, and I think that we have let way too many kids lose their way by not drawing in their young minds with music, dance, painting and the other various ways we can express those things we do not have words for.
— Heather Watts
Dance is the hidden language of the soul.
— Martha Graham
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
— Albert Einstein


 

Our PROMISE

At APA we strive to provide a high level of dance education in a welcoming and safe environment. As dancers and teachers, we understand there is much to be gleaned from this historic art form. A regimen that is centuries old provides consistency, confidence, and freedom in a fast paced world. The day in, day out discipline of a solid dance education is a unique life experience that grows the student in all aspects.

In offering classes for all ages in many styles, we hope to provide a home for movement based artists in our local community. In providing varied opportunities for performance and competition, we desire to introduce our students to a larger performance platform.
