ACCELERATED TRAINING

WANT TO QUALIFY FOR COMPETITION TEAM?

At APA, we believe that our dancers should be trained in multiple disciplines. Dancers who train in more than one discipline tend to learn faster in general and develop a sense of master significantly faster than those who do not.

Dancers enrolled in our Accelerated and Elite Training Programs are required to take a certain number of core classes (depending on their age/level) and participate in exams. Dancers who participate in these same programs are also eligible to audition for our competition team. 🙂
