Most of our Summer classes are 6-weeks long, but we also have some 3-day Dance Camp options (select dates in JUNE & July), 4-week Adult Yoga, and “The Little Mermaid Jr.” musical. Register early, so there’s less chance of your class being full, or canceled due to low enrollment. We will start to cancel classes with low enrollment by mid-June, so make sure to register early as our schedule could change!

Our preferred method for registration is using your APA portal so you can complete everything in full.

Spring Music Recital Tickets: To purchase visit  

Do you have siblings in different recitals? Because of the inconvenience, APA will offer families who have siblings in different recital acts, 4 free tickets to your second show time. We will put a credit in your APA account for the value of 4 free tickets ($40) to deduct off future tuition. APA has over 250 musicians performing with multiple siblings so it can be difficult to schedule all siblings together.
