REVIEWS OF The Academy of Performing Arts IN Wisconsin

Kelly Rickman

My daughter loves her dance classes at APA-Franklin. The building is large, full of light and always spotless. The staff are super friendly and welcoming, and she's having fun in class. It's nice to be able to watch her through the observation windows so I can see her progress. It's also pretty affordable, with a low monthly tuition, affordable summer and mini classes, and they do little things like using the recital costumes twice in a year, which helps keep out of pocket costs low.

Our daughter has been taking lessons at APA for the past few years and we have nothing but good things to say about it. The teachers are great and she has always had a lot of fun. She has taken piano, Glee, Poms and is now doing Jazz Team and Acro. Highly recommend APA!

Casandra Goodman

My family recently switched from the Oak Creek Location and were pleased to see some familiar faces. The staff remembers the children and takes joys in their success. This company gives back to the community and we greatly enjoy their free community events.

Carla Moriarity

Made registration so easy and they let you try the class before you sign up to make sure you child really is interested in the type of dance so as not to book them in something they will get bored with after 1 or 2 classes.

Kimberly Milligan

My daughter has been taking lessons for the last two years at the Franklin location. We love the teachers and atmosphere here.

Katie Schmitz

My daughter has be going to APA for 2 years now, going into her third year! She absolutely loves going to class on a weekly basis as they are learning technique and having fun in class. I don't have others in Milwaukee to compare to, but I was in dance my whole life and this this what I would expect out of a school. There are events throughout the year outside of just dance that is open to the public (Halloween trick or treat, egg hunt for Easter) that has been great! The recitals are nice as they have good class sizes and you can easily see your child on stage. The recitals are only about 1.5 hours as APA has many - I've heard other schools where you sit for many hours to watch your child in 1 or 2, 2 minute routines. I do look forward to continuing at APA and see how my child progresses in her dancing.

Brenda Flitsch

Jamie Sala

We have been so happy with APA. My daughter has been going for three years now and we couldn’t be happier! Keep up the good work APA!!

Jaimi Tellier

My daughter is just starting at APA. So far everyone has been so kind. All of our questions are answered in a timely manner and the front office staff have been so kind when we were ordering shoes and buying an outfit for my daughter. They let her look around and explore to get comfortable with the place!

Karen Barth

We highly recommend APA! Their location in Franklin is modern and easy to get to! All the teachers and staff are always very professional, friendly and caring! My daughter has grown so much as a dancer over the years and it's been so fun to watch! Great job APA!

Haven't joined yet but how much money is it?


The dance classes at APA have all been very good. My daughter has enjoyed taking dance classes at APA the last two years. Their costume prices are reasonable and their recitals are very well organized and professional, not to mention a nice show! So fun to see all of the costumes! If your child isn't into dance, they also have a great music program. My older daughter's teacher and music director, Ms. Tiffany is top notch. She goes the extra mile for all of her students and really tries hard to see them excel. APA is five stars all the way!

Annie Hackett

The Academy is a very organized well run school with excellent customer service, beautiful facilities and a wide variety of classes. Highly recommended!

Sasha Bussian

We attend both APA locations - Oak Creek during the regular school season, and Franklin during the Summer sessions. We love them both!! We just finished up 5 yr old Ballet with Miss Heather; her structure was wonderful, and I LOVED that she started teaching French terminology!!

Megan Rocque

This is going to be our 3rd year at APA in Franklin. Prior to this we attended another dance studio. There are several things that we love about APA. First and foremost, the staff is all adults who have some sort of professional dance background. They offer parent week where parents are invited into the classroom to watch, record, and participate at the end. When concerns did arise, the owners contacted me directly and a resolution as implemented immediately. Beth at the front desk is always extremely helpful and approachable. We LOVE APA and will continue attending.

Renee Roth

We are pretty new to the APA. My daughter has attended 2 classes so far and has loved both of the classes. The instructors have been wonderful, it’s a very nice ,clean facility and all the staff is very helpful and friendly.

angel Gray

I highly recommend if you are not white don't put your child there you will be automatically accused of being dangerous. If you have a problem they will not address it. They will allow for you to be treated badly. I as a parent feel that they do not have all kids best interest at heart there in it for the money.

Lisa Peterson

We switched to APA last fall. APA is much better than "closed" studios. I love that I can watch my daughter through the one-way mirrors. At our previous studio I didn't see my daughter dance the entire year until the spring recital. The song was only 2 minutes and it took half that time to locate her cute face in the sea of matching costumes! Also, I like how much technique is taught. Many studios spend so much time practicing for the recital that their true dance education suffers. I hope that Franklin's center for APA adds leveled ballet next year so we can continue to be an APA family.

Molly Michel

Our daughter takes private guitar lessons at the Franklin location from Mr. Scott. She loves her lessons, has been progressing quickly and is picking up skills well. The facility is beautiful, very well suited to and outfitted for the variety of lessons offered. APA is very organized and informative to the parents as well.

Angy Ford

My daughter loves coming to dance here! The very first week the teacher got right down on her knees to talk to welcome my Bree. We are thrilled to be part of this great school!

Beth Lund

APA is amazing! The staff is always so courteous, friendly and helpful. The entire business is extremely well run and organized, the teachers are excellent at what they do and you can they truly enjoy it! I also really like that APA keeps the music, choreography and costumes child friendly and age appropriate, this is so important these days. They also have 2 recitals a husband and I love it because we get to see our daughter perform more than once and her costume gets a bit more use and our daughter loves it because she loves to perform. They also create a wonderful place for young students to not only have fun, but also learn the technique and discipline of the arts. APA is the best!

Caitlyn Panasuk

My daughter has been taking piano lessons at APA for years now. Miss Tiffany is absolutely exceptional from her teaching technique to the relationship she has with her students. It truly makes a difference when you can see the passion a teacher has for her own talent as well as bringing that same passion and determination out that you see in the growth of her students. I highly recommend APA from the facility to all of the staff, it is a very clean and friendly atmosphere. We have had a very enjoyable experience over the years!

Audrey Roach

This is our 3rd season dancing at APA and we are very happy with the studio. Their website is extremely professional and the front desk staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and welcoming. This really sets the tone for the overall experience at APA. I think it's very beneficial to have adults teaching all of the classes and have been impressed with all of our instructors so far. I also appreciate the studio's family-friendly environment and modesty pledge. All of the recital costumes are modest and accommodate students of all shapes and sizes and the music and choreography is always age appropriate. Finally, the way APA facilitates the winter and spring showcases is amazing. Couldn't be happier with our dance experience!

My family loves APA. The Franklin location is so large, it gives everyone the ability to watch class comfortably. Ms.Beth, who runs the front desk, is so nice and makes coming in a joy. She knows all the kiddos and is so good with them. We do both dance and music, and I would highly encourage both.

I love this school so much! They do so much for the community, so much for their students and the leadership behind this studio is excellent!!! Thanks for being a great example of what a top studio should look like!!

Leah MacDonald

My daughter takes piano lessons at APA with Mrs. Tiffany. We love love love her teaching style and energy level. I highly recommend APA for all families looking for music lessons for their child(ren).


My child was beaming when she finished her first class. The 5-7 year old ballet/tap class was very age-appropriate. Ms. Danielle was patient and showed a lot of enthusiasm.

Timothea Yonkers

This is my daughter’s 4th year with APA, and she just loves it here. She’s learning great technique but it’s a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. I appreciate that they use their costumes for multiple performance. It’s special to have something so fancy, but my pocketbook appreciates it! Love it!

Trisha Dodge

Although my daughter dances at the Oak Creek location we have been to community events at the Franklin location. Both Trubk or Treat and an Easter Egg hunt. They were very enjoyable and so much fun for my 4 year old.

Ashley C

We love APA! This will be my daughters 3rd year at APA and it has been such a confidence booster for her. The staff is also amazing everyone is always so friendly. And we also love all of the different events they have through out the year for the students and families.

Tom Ceparski

My daughter has been attending classes and dancing competitively for APA for years. not only have I watched her technique develop, but also her confidence, her networking skills, and her team/leadership skills. In addition, the entire staff has made personal impacts on her as role models. I could not be more pleased or more grateful.

Amanda James

Both my children love taking dance classes at APA-Franklin! All of the teachers have a great knowledge and keep the classes fun while still learning new techniques each time. The location is clean, spacious and all staff is very friendly. They keep you very informed of all necessary information for parents through email as well which is helpful. We love APA!

Katherine Becker

We love APA!!! Miss Amy is so great with my daughter, she was very excited to return to ballet this year. All my girls look forward to their wide variety of classes to choose from for the summer too! I would recommend this studio!

Alyssa Pearson

Olivia Hartley

This is my daughter's first year at APA. She was able to do a trial class during the summer and had a great experience. The teachers and staff are all very knowledgeable and friendly. They've been very helpful answering all of our questions and we're looking forward to her upcoming class.

Ashley Verheyen

My daughter started at Franklin APA 2 years ago and we have lived all of her teachers and the staff. I love the modest costumes and appreciate my daughter being covered and the costumes still being amazing!!

Liane Yockey

My daughter has been attending dance classes here going on her 3rd year and we absolutely love the place. I highly recommend this dance company to everyone. I love the fact that the dancers costumes are always appropriate to wear with no midriff showing.

shivani abrol

This place is really good. The teachers are very nice n understanding. They know how to deal with the kid who don't have interest in dancing.

Denise Jankowski

We absolutely love APA! Our daughter has been taking dance classes at the Franklin location for 3 years now and she loves it! The staff is very friendly and you can tell that the dance teachers love their jobs as well. They are very good with the kids and we especially love the fact that they do not focus so much on being a “perfect” dancer, but rather making sure the kiddos are having fun and enjoying what they are doing. Our family also enjoys how the owner includes the families in many community events that they organize throughout the year such as, the Community Holiday party, Easter Egg Hunt, 4th of July Parades in Oak Creek and Franklin, and at the end of Summer, a pool party at Cool Waters. And we also love that APA has two recitals each year in the winter and spring (which are optional) for their students which are held at the South Milwaukee PAC! The showcases are absolutely entertaining! We highly recommend joining the APA family!
