WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

“CAPA helped me to grow in many ways: Technically, my classes gave me advanced skill and strength. Artistically, my teachers, especially my mentor, Miss Ashley Feinsinger, gave me creativity and passion. Emotionally, my teachers, studio directors, and fellow dancers provided a warm environment that nurtured my deep love of dance from a very young age. I’m so happy that I grew up in, and will always be part of, the CAPA family.”

- Michele Carter
Alumni, Juilliard School

“My years as a CAPA student gave me a strong foundation to excel as a dancer. The training I received provided me with strong technique as well as the versatility that is needed to succeed in today’s dance world. Most importantly, the relationships I made with friends, teachers, and directors will be lifelong. I am honored now to teach and choreograph alongside my childhood mentors.”

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

“I brought my then 2-year-old daughter Emily to her first ballet class at CAPA for the first time over ten years ago. Little did I know that it was the first of thousands of trips to CAPA, that it would become a second home and family to her, and that it would literally change the course of her life. Now, as she spends her summers dancing and studying across the country with some of the world’s most renowned ballet teachers and schools, including the Kirov Academy and the School of American Ballet, we are always so happy to come home to CAPA, which has given her the confidence, skill, and passion to pursue her dream.”

- Kathy Ireland
Mother of Emily Ireland

CAPA is a wonderful place to learn how to dance because I feel like I am free to be myself and express my feelings through dance. Everyone is so nice, I feel “at home,” as if we are one big CAPA Family!

- Kendyl Y. 
CAPA Student, age 12
