Prop Kits for Dancers in Grades 1st and Younger: Starting in October, we will start introducing our APA Prop Kits for our younger classes. These kits are owned by APA however each student will get to use their same kit each week. Each student will have their own items stored in their individual bag for sanitary purposes.
Optional Poms for Purchase: We had a few parents inquire about purchasing Poms for their student to use at APA and at home since we are not using our APA poms. We are ordering some samples and will send out options in mid-October if anyone wants to purchase.
Dance Showcase: Our Dance Showcase is set for Saturday, December 19th and Sunday, December 20th. Due to Covid – we will not release any details until November so we can monitor what restrictions will be set at the South Milwaukee PAC. Regardless, we will offer some sort of performance option in the Winter if we can comply with the state guidelines. This might not be an hour-long show with 800 seats sold, but we will still make this a special experience for your child.
If your student is not available to perform in either our Winter or Spring Showcase and will NOT need a costume, they can still participate in our classes.
Dance Costumes: Costumes were automatically charged to your account on file on September 25th if you were registered prior to this date, unless you notified us otherwise. The deadline to purchase costumes for our Winter Showcase will be Thursday, October 15th. Costumes are also based upon availability so if you wait too long to purchase, the item might not be available if it is not in stock.
