Monthly Newsletter – July 2020

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 call us at (414) 768-0101. We would rather have you call and find the right answer, than miss something important.

All of our recital information that was emailed out can be found at the end of our newsletter. 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. 

Thank you for being a part of APA this past season and making it a great year!

5 & 10 Year Awards:  Students that have taken classes at APA for 5 and 10 complete years are eligible to receive a trophy! If your child has been with us that long, please email [email protected] This is due by Tuesday, July 7th. Students will receive their award at our outdoor recitals. If they are not performing at the recital, please let us know and we will hold at APA for pick-up.

Student Appreciation Night Canceled:  Every year we rent out a local water park to host our annual Student Appreciation Night. Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our event due to the smaller capacity they are allowing in. Our event unfortunately would be too large to host.

Saying Goodbyes:  This year we will be losing some staff members as they pursue other opportunities.   We are so grateful to have had Miss Alyse & Miss Jessie work with us for the past 14 years. Miss Jordynn was an APA dancer growing up and we were so happy to have had her as a teacher for the past 2 years.  Miss Gwyn had her first year with APA teaching Acro but will be returning to her current job full-time as a school teacher and wants to take some time off. We would like to thank them for all they have done for our students and families at APA! We’ve enjoyed having them with us and we wish them well!
