A Continued Tradition!

Vasia, Cam, Jillian, Emma, Julia, Lucia, Clara – Day 1 DETC

Today, 7 of our talented and passionate young dancers began their journey into the world of Dance Education Training with The Dance Teachers’ Club of Boston.  This year marks the 75th year of the DETC with the organization that the directors, majority of teachers and assistants from APAA have graduated from! We are proud to welcome the next generation of aspiring young dance teachers to the world of dance education and support them on this journey! The joy of teaching dance is one of the most fulfilling careers imaginable and we are excited to share in our true passion with them!

Nationals 2016

We had a fabulous time at the Turn It Up 10th Anniversary Nationals in Cape Cod! Our students danced beautifully and were recognized with numerous awards and scholarships!We could not be more proud of all of them and look forward to our upcoming season!


Summer Fun 2015 at APAA!

What a fun summer it has been and there is still more to come!  We started off by attending the national dance competition for Step Up 2 Dance and brought home numerous awards and trophies!  While at the competition, the girls also had an opportunity to attend master classes with a group of really great teachers!

We also enjoyed 3 weeks of summer camp…Ballerina/Princess, Jazzy/Tumble and Do You Think You Can Dance Camp!  The students just could not get enough of summer camp!  Keep that in mind moms for next year!  Everyone who attended one week wished they had signed up for more!  We had so many enthusiastic helpers and even our recent graduates came back to teach!  The students enjoyed dancing, dress up, arts and craft projects and even a little performance at the end of Do You Think You Can Dance Camp!  Can’t wait until next summer!  We have more great ideas!
