Say Cheeeeeese!

Last Sunday, we had Picture Day for the CPAA Dance Company and Kidz Crew. Here are a few candid shots that were taken by parents while waiting for their children to take their pictures.


Student of the Week for November 4, 2013 is...NYLA!

Nyla is our Student of the Week for the week of November 4, 2013. Nyla is a student in Troy's acrobatics and tumbling class and Miss Siara's hip hop class. She is a great asset to both classes. She takes corrections from week to week and leads by example for all of the other students. She is kind, caring and a hard worker! Here is a bit about Nyla:


Monsters of Hip Hop FUN!

The CPAA Dance Company and Kidz Crew attended Monsters of Hip Hop in Atlanta GA last weekend. We had an awesome time! The kids attended classes all weekend by some of the top hip hop choreographers and dancers in the industry.  Classes started on Friday night and continued of Saturday and Sunday...all day long! We joined other dance studios and hip hop crews at the Sheraton in downtown Atlanta to learn from the best!
On Saturday evening, Monsters let all of the studios perform in a Showcase in order to allow the choreographers to critique the dances from the studios before we actually attend a competition. Some of the Dance Company members performed their small group hip hop dance to "Come and Get It". They did awesome...and the choreographers LOVED it! It was our first time performing the dance in a stage set venue. And I couldn't be prouder of the girls. The had the audience hyped! Congratulations of performing so well ladies!

They also held a Hip Hop Freestyle Battle for all of the kids on Saturday evening. Tim from the Kidz Crew won $50 and 3rd place in a very competitive battle. Congrats Tim! Some of our parents GOT DOWN in the Parent's Battle, too! Melony, Latesha, Janelle and Sherronda all showed off their skills on stage. They killed it...and got a nice workout too! Latesha got 2nd in the Parent's Battle and almost came home with a scholarship for her daughter. Way to go Tesha!
Overall, we had a GREAT time. Monsters of Hip Hop is always one of my favorite conventions. This week, the kids came in practicing all of the dances they learned at the convention. We can't wait till next year to do it all over again!
