My daughter is 9 years old and has been in dance for almost 7 years. 5 years at a different local dance school and 2 years at APA Oak Creek. We decided to make the switch after many years, to APA and my daughter absolutely loves it! My daughter takes singing/piano, rec dance, acro and her 1st year of competitive dance. She loves the competition team and we feel APA is a great fit for her. She has been more motivated since starting at The Academy of Performing Arts - Oak Creek, and focused on improving, rather than just an afterschool activity. The nice thing about APA is they do have different levels, so if you just want to do one night a week for an hour, you can. If you want to be there 5 days a week, you can do that too! Everyone is so friendly and caring (teachers, students, parents and Trisha). My daughter has made many new friends already and loves all of her teachers. The school and staff are very informative and do a great job with communicating dates, fees, classes, performances and recitals.

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 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.

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!!!
