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!

Oh What Fun is to dance and play at APAA on a Summer Day!

Our week 3 group – Jazzy Tumble & Angelina Ballerina!

We had so much fun this summer at all of our dance programs! One of the nicest aspects was seeing the older and younger girls interacting together in perfect harmony! We think of all of our students as part of our extended family, we like to call it our “Dance Family”! The older girls enjoyed 3 weeks of Jazzy ~ Tumble camp and the little ones had a blast at Pretty Princess, Abby Cadabby and Angelina Ballerina camp! Most wished they could come back for one more week because they had so much fun! We also had many of our team members with us volunteering their time helping out! A special thanks to the ones who participated! Check out some of our photos to see what were up to!
