Come try a recreational dance class today!

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. We are happy to help you find the right class for your child. Even if your budding superstar isn’t sure if she would like Hip Hop, Contemporary or Tap, we can help find the best fit. Come join our APA family and see what all the fun is about!

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.

Here is a breakdown of how we define each of our dance programs:

 

APA Little Stars Program

2.5-5 Year Old Classes, including PreDance, Tap, and Ballet

Students typically come to class once a week

Strictly extra-curricular

APA Recreational Program

Kindergartners and older, including all styles of dance

Dancers typically come to class once a week

Mostly extra-curricular, as dancers may try new styles each year

Dress code and attendance are more relaxed

Open enrollment throughout the year in these classes to accommodate new students

Emphasis on FUN and FITNESS!

APA Progressive Program

1st Grade and older, including all styles of dance

Dancers come 1-3 nights per week, typically taking more than one style of dance

Students consistently take the same styles year after year, therefore advance their skills

Dress code and attendance are taken more seriously

Emphasis on progressing through the curriculum, while having fun!
