APA Students of the Month:
Team Dancer: Makenzie Paprocki – Makenzie improves daily because she works really hard in class and applies critiques quickly. Makenzie asks questions during class to help her better understand what she needs to be doing. She does a great job in class and especially practicing at home. We enjoy having her in class because of her great laugh and personality. She is also very respectful. Makenzie was nominated by all of her coaches.
Recreational Dancer: Jacob Emmer – “Jacob is an ALL STAR student. He comes to class each week with a positive, upbeat, and fun outlook on class. Each week Jacob challenges himself and succeeds at reaching his goals. We love having him in class and he is a great asset to our studio. Thank you for inspiring us each week Jacob, you are a true ROCKSTAR!” Jacob was nominated by Miss Alyse.
Music Student: Johannah Terpeza – “Johanna is a sweet young lady who loves music. She is involved in singing, piano, and dance!

Showcase Routines: Now that we are getting closer to our June 15th and 16th Showcases, held at the South Milwaukee High School PAC, each class has began working on their routine(s). They will still be working on technique, across the floor combinations, jumps and turns. If your child is not participating in our show, they will still learn the dance, and will be strategically placed in formations so we do not have any gaps during the performance.

Please remember it is very hard for us to get siblings to perform together. We run an enrollment report from families that register prior to June 15th and prioritize in the order that you register.
