My daughter dances at the Franklin location and I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we have had here. At first entrance to the studio the staff is smiling and friendly and quickly learned my daughters name and always addresses her when we walk in the door. The teachers are professional, smiling, and run exceptional dance classes. My daughter loves dancing and looks forward to this class every week and I truly believe this is because of the care at this studio. The classes are small in size and I get to watch from a two way glass window which is so great for me!! I will send my daughter to this studio as long as she wants to dance!

My son Gavin has been attending The Academy of Performing Arts since they first opened. He loves dancing and he loves how caring and friendly the staff are. He was asked to join two other dance schools but turned them down. He did not want to leave The Academy. He started in ballet/jazz, then went to boys hip hop. Now he is on the competitive dance team. He has gained a lot of confidence and the ability to express himself in front of peers without feeling self conscience. Gavin has to juggle little league, the traveling baseball team, basketball, football and hip hop. But he does not want to give up hip hop. He has been attending for 7 years and plans on staying there. I love that the staff knows us and is very helpful and understanding with different situations that have risen. I definitely would recommend this school to anyone that asks. Thank you Academy of Performing Arts, Jamie and Stacy... :)

My daughter started with The Academy 3 years ago and flourished that first year. Unfortunately we had to move further away after that first year and jumped from studio to studio trying to find that same experience we had with The Academy. This year we decided to travel to Oakcreek so she could dance with the competitive dance team at The Academy. She absolutely loves it and has already shown improvement just in the first couple of weeks. The studio is so organized, helpful and informative. All the teachers are well prepared and knowledgeable in their art. We are feeling very relieved that we are back at The Academy. We can't wait for the competitions and recitals this year!!!

My daughter has been dancing at The Academy of Performing Arts for 5yrs. She has been able to learn tap, ballet, hip-hop, poms, and is now part of their competition team. My son was also able to take a hip-hop class when he was 4yrs old. All the teachers are great at what they do, and are very friendly. The winter and spring showcases are so organized, and such a treat to see. They hold a high standard for dancing. I would recommend this studio to anyone who is wanting to get their child in dance. They have many other services too, from acting, to guitar lessons, to preschool.

My daughter is in her 7th year of dancing at the academy! We have been in 4 different types of classes from the young child combo class to the jazz/tap/ballet. We have nothing but great experiences with every class she has taken and she has learned a lot about what she can do! Being at the studio has given her confidence and has also challenged her to do and try new things! The teachers and assistants have all been wonderful! This is our first year being on the Jr. Prep dance team. They are great at organizing the talent so that each child fits in where he/she should. Our family highly recommends The Academy of Performing Arts in Oak Creek!

My daughter is in the competitve dance company and has been for several years. When she was 4 years old her teacher, Miss Jessie, invited her to take part...I was hesitant to have her involved in competitive dance at such a young age but I am so glad I took the chance and signed her up! My daughter has made such great friends and they are all growing up together as members of this dance team. Miss Jessie fosters a team environment and teaches in a way that helps each dancer on the team develop to their fullest potential. Stacy, the owner of the studio, is very nice and approachable. She and Miss Jessie often seek the opinion of parents on things we'd like to see at the studio, etc. which is something you don't often see at other dance studios.

We found this studio when my older daughter wanted to take acting class. My younger daughter took a dance class because she thought it would be fun. That was over 3 years ago. Since then, I have seen my daughter develop a passion for dance in a way I never imagined. I thank the talented teachers for their dedication. I love that this studio is able to offer this caliber of instruction at a tuition cost parents can afford. I can't imagine being any other place.

My daughter just started her 6th year at The Academy of Performing Arts in Oak Creek. Every year there is a winter showcase and a spring showcase where your child can perform in one or more shows. There is also and opportunity to be in the Franklin or Oak Creek parade which my daughter has done for the last five years. Before she came here, she danced at Next Step in Franklin where she was treated like a number. After 3 years there, her dance teacher still didn't know her name and then made her repeat a class two years in a row without an explanation. If you needed to ask a question, you were lucky to find a staff person working. Then we found out about the Academy so we switched and it was a completely different experience! All the girls are treated with respect and kindness no matter what level of dancer they are. The dance teachers are very experienced and talented and make the classes fun for everyone. They don't discriminate... you can bring your son too! The staff is always there to help and they are really friendly. Stacy, the owner, is very involved in the studio and keeps adding new classes and events every year. This year there was a pot luck lunch in the park where all the dancers and parents could bring food and get to know each other. There are also fundraisers that you can participate in that help with your monthly tuition cost. The classes are reasonably priced and you get a discount with each additional class you take. There is a wide range of classes to take- breakdancing, hip-hop, ballet, tap, jazz, poms, piano, guitar, voice, acting and more. My daughter is on a competitive team where she gets to compete at different locations throughout the year. She loves her dance teacher and the girls she dances with. They also have another studio in Franklin which just opened last year. I highly recommend this studio for your child. I have not had one bad experience here.
