APA All-Star Competitive Poms Team!

Our APA All-Stars Poms Team is a competitive program held at APA (The Academy of Performing Arts) at our Oak Creek location! This NEW program will start with one team for students ages 7-11 years old. Our Team will compete at 2 local Poms competitions in the winter months and have the opportunity to perform at different events throughout the community such as parades, sporting events, future Milwaukee Bucks games, etc.

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. This is a great opportunity for dancers looking to audition for their local school dance/poms team and wanting to experience a competitive program while increasing their dance training. The techniques and skills learned in this program will give dancers an edge when trying out for their school team as well as provide them with a foundation to build upon if they decide to pursue poms at a more competitive level. 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!,
