“We have been a part of The Artistic Parents Association for over 10 years. We are truly grateful for the financial support this organization has provided to our daughters. It has enabled both of our girls to attend many workshops, conventions, dance camps, and training sessions over the years. Our oldest daughter is striving to achieve a professional dance career and the APA has provided her experiences and possibilities that were invaluable in helping her develop her craft. It has made a tremendous difference in their interaction with friends, their artistry, their physical conditioning, their confidence and self-esteem, as well as their general well-being, not only in the dance world, but in their daily lives.

As with all sport activities, the cost has become much more prohibitive and the funding from the APA makes it possible to attend some of the events that are offered to those kids who are dancing recreationally, or for those who intend to pursue a career in this field.

Thank You APA for making these years possible and we hope that many more dancers in the years to come will have the opportunities it has given our children.”
