APA All-Star Competitive Poms Team!

Our APA All-Stars Poms Teams is a competitive program held at APA (The Academy of Performing Arts) at our Oak Creek location! This is our third season with our new All-Star program and we are so excited to continue to both educate and grow our Poms community.  Our Teams compete at 3 regional Poms competitions and a Championship experience! Having the opportunity to perform at different events throughout the community such as parades, sporting events, and of course our Winter Showcase! 

Poms dance is a high-energy, excitement-filled activity that requires coordination, flexibility, and stamina. Our All-Stars Poms program is dedicated to helping dancers enhance their Poms technique and skills training.  The techniques and skills learned in this program will give dancers an edge, as well as provide them with a foundation to build upon. We hope you’ll consider joining us for what promises to be a fun and rewarding experience!

Dancers qualify for the program by showcasing their skill and talent during an annual audition. No prior training necessary to audition! All members of our competition teams must also continue to participate in selected technique classes during the regular dance school year. See audition details below!
