APA has been a place for me to grow and flourish into someone I am proud of. Not only is it my second home, but a place where lifelong friendships and memories are made. I’m blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of a great team of amazing staff who are more like a family. Working together to lift each other up and encouraging each other to put our best foot forward. I have grown both professionally and personally from my experiences at APA and appreciate the opportunities I have been given to be the best at what I do.

Ambition Performing Arts is more than a studio, it is a family-centred organization not just for the students, but also for the staff. They go above and beyond for their families, caring for each student and recognizing the power of the arts to invigorate their lives, and give the teachers and staff the tools to make connections with each student. Each student matters more than just being a dancer, actor, or musician; we take the time to understand who each child is, what they're passionate about, and how we can empower them through the arts. My time spent at APA has allowed me to grow exponentially in my teaching and self-development, as they want each person who walks through their doors to grow where they are planted, recognizing how we can become 1% better every class. Through innovative studio practices, Ambition Performing Arts raises the barre in what we can expect from our arts educating studios.
