My daughter has been attending SPAA since she was in first grade. She graduated from high school last year and through the years, she found her passion in dance. The staff and instructors all have extensive professional experience in the classes they teach. SPAA is truly a multi-discipline performing arts academy, where they offer many genre of dance, such as ballet, modern, jcontemporary, jazz, tap, hip-hop, and more. They also have a music theater side for students who love to act, sing, and dance. Some of the other girls also have the chance to choreograph dance pieces and teach younger dancers. One of the great features of SPAA, is the amount of performances the students have options to perform in. My daughter and most of the students love to be on stage!
During the years at SPAA, my daughter made life-long friendships and I want to mention this place is not "clicky" like you may think. Each girl is supportive of each other, no matter which dance role they are casted, or which summer intensive program they were accepted to.
We attribute these good values of support and respect to the SPAA instructors and staff. In addition, with my daughter's committment to dance, she dance over 20 hours a week but learned to manage her time with homework before and between dance classes. Younger dancers looking up to the older dancers and learning to be committed to dance and school work at the same time.
We love SPAA not only for teaching the beauty of dance to my daughter, but for the many wonderful life lessons being a better human being.
