As we are preparing for our end-of-the-year performances, we know a lot of questions may pop up. If anyone is uncertain about any information, please feel free to call us at our number listed below. We would rather have you call and find the right answer than miss something important. Our staff is here to assist you! If you will not be joining us for Summer classes, we hope you have a great Summer and we hope to see you in Fall for the start of our 17th year! Thank you for being a part of APA this past season and making it a great year! The studio will have limited office hours during the Summer.

Dance Showcase Information
Volunteers: We are looking for parent volunteers to help us backstage. Unlike years past, you would be a volunteer back-stage and will be assisting ALL classes back there, not just your students’ class. Volunteers do not have to purchase a ticket and can watch your child’s performance from the side stage. Siblings who are not performing are not allowed to be back-stage. Please sign up by clicking HERE. For the safety of our students, anyone backstage will need to check in as a volunteer and receive one of our volunteer lanyards. Parents are not allowed backstage unless they are an approved volunteers. We will send a volunteer email the week of the Showcase with final instructions. ***We are not asking for volunteers for our Team Showcase.
Remaining Tickets for Sale: If anyone is looking to purchase extra tickets for the family to attend our Showcases, we still have tickets available. Because this is general seating, even if you purchased tickets for the first round, your family will still be able to sit together if you purchase more at this later date. View our Showcase page below.
Practice Music/Videos: Listed below is our index that will have links for your student’s songs. Younger classes will also have practice videos listed as well. This spreadsheet will also list Spring Showcase dates/times and rehearsal times at APA.
