APA Team Dancer of the Month: Congratulations goes to Hannah Fleming, our June Student of the Month
Hannah is 15 years old and attends Oak Creek High School. Her favorite subject is English and when she’s not lighting up the dance floor she’s curled up with a book. Hannah also enjoys listening to One Direction, watching movies, and indulging in her favorite food pasta! This season Hannah is working on progressing in her facials and giving more emotion when performing. Lyrical is her favorite style of dance! Hannah is most grateful for her family and friends and is excited for Summer, her favorite season.
