"The Academy of the Performing Arts is a wonderful state of the art studio for dance and music. My children have spent many wonderful years of dance here and will for many more to come. They have gained so much from their instruction from Miss Shoni, including professional dance technique, strength, love of the arts, unique dance opportunities and many many amazing friends who share the same love of dance and determination to shine. We are so fortunate to have a top notch dance and music studio here in the Flathead Valley. Come see what it's all about!!"

"My three granddaughters have been dancing at APA for the last nine years and LOVE it. Shoni crates an environment of honesty, kindness, compassion and support. All dancers gain a respect for each other and their differences as well as a respect for the arts. This makes APA a very special place for children to grow. It is so very rewarding to watch my granddaughters and the other kids at APA dance their hearts out each week. Two of my granddaughters have had opportunities to be teacher’s assistants, this provides them so many personal connections and life lessons. And each year their recital is a community event that displays the greatness of APA! Thank you APA for being such a HUGE part of my family’s life!"
