Students dance ballet & hip hop in Santa Cruz for National Dance Week

Happy dance students from Aptos Agape Dance Academy and Scotts Valley Agape Dance Academy perform ballet and hip hop in "Dancin' Downtown" in Santa Cruz in honor of National Dance Week! We performed at Pacific & Locust Street downtown. What a great event! Great work dancers! See you downtown next year!!


"Melanie if it wasn't for you encouraging and supporting me to start ballet i might not have found my love and passion for it.

When i first started i was nervous because i was farther behind then everyone, because they had started that summer (or years before). No matter how scared or nervous i was to try something new you told me "Just try it" or "Go for it" and then you would give me corrections. You inspire me to strive to get better and to practice and to grow as a dancer, but also to use dance as a way to express myself and bring glory to God.

The best thing about having you as my teacher is that you're a amazing example of joy, love, passion, faith, integrity, encouragement,strength,grace,talent and excitement. Plus you're hilarious and so fun to be around. Thank you for the gift of dance you give to your students and to the community." Love ~ Shannon
