Our Mission

GCAPA’s mission is to educate each Star in performing arts etiquette, technique, and safety as a conduit for life lessons, humility, and confidence; to do so honestly, candidly, and compassionately; always keeping the child in mind; always willing to improve and progress; always being the example of modesty, commitment, and courtesy.

Lake Norman Dance Testimonial Badge

“We are so happy to have become a part of the GCAPA dance family. Although my daughter has been taking dance classes for 6 years, this is her first year at GCAPA. She has only been dancing here a few short months, but what a difference it has made in her life!” In her words: “Before I felt like I was just memorizing steps; now, I feel like I am really dancing.”

– Jon Banta

“My girls have been dancing at GCAPA for the past 8+ years and have blossomed into confident, courageous and creative young ladies! Miss Wendi and the Crew push all of the dancers to do their best in a fun, encouraging, and supportive way. My girls absolutely love it there and have made friendships that will last a lifetime!”

– Jennifer Petrosky
