APA offers the most styles of dance and the most diverse schedule options in the area. View our class schedules below or call to speak with one of our friendly staff members.

If you have had some dance experience, we encourage you to try one of our Progressive Classes. This competency-based structure will maximize productivity in the classroom, encourage dancers through attainable goals, and reward students for hard work and dedication. Consequently, students will be asked to complete a concrete set of skills before moving on to the next level based on teacher recommendation.
