We so appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your studio. We had the opportunity to go out of town and view three other recitals this summer. I was so into it after seeing the one you put on for our girls so I went every chance I got. However I left every one a little disappointed. I was expecting the excitement and drama that I felt just sitting in the front row at yours and I have yet to see one that compares to the show you put together. Your "hands on" attention to detail and wide range of costumes blew all the other ones away! BRAVO! You did a great job and I am soooo glad we get the privilege to dance with a owner that is so passionate and driven as you...and it shows!

Kathy pours her heart into APA! She models an excellent work ethic and involves her dancers in positive community activities. Dancers receive excellent instruction all through the year, along with additional opportunities which she continually strives to provide. It’s great to be a part of a studio that is so professional, and yet so personal.

Thanks to you and your staff for the wonderful year Samantha had at APA! I’m so thankful for all APA has to offer. She really enjoyed being involved this year with the summer dance fest. It makes me smile when Samantha is learning and enjoying what she loves to do...DANCE. Samantha's favorite quote: "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain".

The show was great, as usual. From my vantage point in the lobby this weekend I heard more times than I can count about your studio being "one of a kind" and how professional recital week and the performances are. It really becomes obvious when you see the "product" that others are putting out. I only need 2 more years, but I hope you do have another 15 years "in you." The lives of your students and the community are greatly enriched by you sharing your gift with us. Thank you.

Another great performance!!! Your recitals are the best. I love the
costumes and the music is always so appropriate for the age of the student. Oh, the pictures in front lobby and all the photo albums – exceptional. I did get a little teary eyed when looking at all the pictures of Allison, Gina, & Kate [past graduates]. Even though we want them to grow up I still miss the excitement of dance. Take a bow, you deserve the applause.

All three of my children have thrived in the developmentally appropriate, non-competitive environment at APA. The relaxed, friendly atmosphere has been particularly important for our daughter, who has autism.
