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

Our week 3 group - Jazzy Tumble & Angelina Ballerina!

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!

We successfully completed our first competition season and we are happy to say that we will be moving on to season 2. It was a lot of work and definitely a bigger commitment than many of the girls have ever made, but worth it for the overall outcome which not only includes another Gold and High Gold award, but also noticeable improvement in skill and performance and a renewed enthusiasm for dance and being involved at the studio! That is what we LOVE!!! Some of the team members have been at the studio for several weeks over the summer volunteering their time to help out with our camps and even lending a hand organizing our props, costumes and cds. That is in addition to the first of 2, 15 hour week long intensive programs that we held for the juniors and seniors with Miss Katie and 2 guest ballet teachers, (Olivia Powell for the June week and Rachel White for the week in August).

It was our first year of having a competitive dance team and with lots of dedication and commitment, we made it through our first year so far with flying colors. One more step to go. After countless hours of practice and qualifying at the local competition…the girls are heading to Nationals in Maine! Miss Katie and Miss Nicole gave it their all to create 2 terrific routines for the groups. Here’s to doing the best we can do and having fun in the process! Good Luck!
