My son did an 8 week dance class last year and loved it. Unfortunately we couldn’t commit to a full year at that time. This year he started Piano with Miss Ramona and Hip Hop Dance Class right after Piano for the full year. He’s been really enjoying both classes. Thank you APA, we love it there!

My daugther loved the summer bootcamp she attended this summer… She enjoyed it so much, she talked about what she learned for weeks. Now she attends the Happy Feet class and she loves thr class, her teacher and her dancemates. 🙂 We will definitely continue attending her classes this year and even extend it the next year. 🌟🩰💃👯‍♀️

We have loved getting to know Miss Angela this season! She has pushed my daughter to become strong both in technique, and also as a teammate. She has created an environment for my daughter to grow into a much stronger dancer this season. She is the perfect balance of firm, fair, and fun. We could not have done this season without her! Miss Darci has been an incredible mentor for my son. The relationships she has with her students is fantastic, and I so appreciate the safe and supportive environment she creates, especially for boys in the dance world. Miss Sarah has been a great dance teacher for my daughter. The environment she creates in the ballet class is fun, but still technique focussed. Her choreography is beautiful and my daughter can’t wait to perform it at recital. Miss Alexa has been a dance teacher, mentor and friend to my daughter. She looks forward to going to her classes each week, where she is provided a safe, supportive, and challenging environment. My daughter has learned so much from her over the few years that they have worked together and we can’t wait for more!

My daughter is starting her 7th year with the dance studio and she loves it.  She is treated with kindness and respect always.  They are taking extra precautions with the pandemic to make the kids feel safe.  It is a great local studio that gives back to the community.  They have made my daughter feel like a part of the dance family and it has been a great experience.

Ambition Performing Arts has been our 2nd home for the past 12 years.  They have taught my kids more then just dancing, they have taught them self discipline and responsibility.  They have supported our family through alot, my kids would spend all their free time here if it was possible.
