Now I don't go to APA, and I've heard great things about it but when I saw rhein costumes I was glad I didn't go there. APA is a nice place but I think there costumes are too skimpy...
My daughter (14 years old) loves going here. She likes that the instructors are fun, hip and love dancing as well. Not over the top technical for a beginner, which is nice since my daughter started when she was 13 years old. Great studio and staff.
Great Dance Studio – This will be our third year at APA and I have two daughters who dance there. We love it! The teachers are outstanding and are very professional and take their job seriously. The recital at the end of the year is put together very well. The communication is great, with newsletters and updated information at the studio and online. We have been to a different studio our first year of dance and it doesn't even come close to APA!
Excellent Instruction! – Posted by coatsfamily on 01/13/2010
Six years ago I was looking for something fun for my four year old daughter... I never could have imagined what was in store for her. Her love of dancing was evident from the beginning and the staff at APA saw it and embraced it! They continue to do a great job challenging her without frustrating her. Hillary and the other teachers know how to get the best out of each and every student because they take the time to know each and every student. I feel lucky we found a home at APA!!!
Home Away From Home – There are so many words to describe APA! My daughter has been dancing at APA for 4 1/2 years and absolutely LOVES it! The kids that dance at this studio are amazing inside and out. They help each other out, they support each other throughout the dance year with encouragement and friendship! The older girls are always there for the younger ones. I truly believe that these dancers support each other because they see how encouraging and supportive the teachers are! There have been so many opportunities for these young dancers at APA. For example, because of her dancing at APA my daughter has been on the cover of a Costume Catalog and continues to model for them, and she is shown in the Yellowpages online commercial. These opportunities are emailed by Hillary, the owner of APA, to all APA parents so everyone has a chance to explore other fun avenues within the dance community! My favorite time at APA as a parent is during competitions when the teachers are so EXCITED about our dances as a studio and just encourage these kids to do their best and to have FUN!!!!! It makes me smile to think that if someone forgot something for a dance there is ALWAYS a dance teacher, another mom, or another dancer running around to see if they have extras for that child. APA is Home away from Home and everyone there is very supportive of each other. THAT IS WHAT I CALL A FAMILY!
APA Rocks!! – We have been with APA for 6 years now, and I wouldn't dream of ever going anywhere else!! The owner and her staff are all so talented and they each have a way of making every dancer feel special. They know how to challenge their students and encourage them to go that extra step to make them succeed. My two daughters dance 2 and 3 nights a week, and would go 5 nights a week if I let them!! They love it and I love seeing their passion for dance come alive at APA!!!
WE LOVE APA!! – My son has been dancing at APA for 5 years and he absolutely loves it. I like the fact that they acknowlege him as a male dancer and cater to what makes him most comfortable. All of the teachers have taken the time to help him develop and become more confident. He truly enjoys dancing there and I couldn't think of a better place for him to be.
Great Dance Studio – We have been part of the APA family for 5 years now. I have 2 daughters and they both dance at APA and we absolutely love the staff, the atmosphere, and the fun. It is not just a dance studio, we are a family at APA!!!!
WOW!!! – My daughter has been with APA for 2 years now and we have loved EVERY minute of our time there. We came from a VERY prominent and sought out studio in Cary where were happy but not thrilled. APA is in a completely different class. When you visit at first glance you won't be impressed. But, trust me and sign up. It's what's behind the doors. The people, the owner, the entire staff is wonderful. The organization of every facet of the dance studio is wonderful, from the class schedule to the recital rehearsals, timing and ticket sales. I truly cannot say enough good things about APA. Hope to see you at this year's dance recital.
