Welcome to GCAPA! You have completely made our year by becoming a part of our community! We plan to spend the year showing your Star how to shine! And you can be the paparazzi!
We thought it best to answer a few important FAQ’s to get you started so that you can familiarize yourself with the layout and get accustomed to what to expect. If we have forgotten anything, please let us know.
THE BAND APP
Many quick responses are received via veteran parents in the band app. It’s a very busy season for the Crew, so there’s a great chance that if you can’t get one of the Crew right away or after hours, there’s a parent with some knowledge! Just post your question and someone will lead you to the answer! Click the icon to download the app or go to band.us on your desktop.
You will receive a Recital Handbook with all the information that pertains to JUST YOU! Inside the handbook you will find quick links and QR codes to order flowers, where to download your pictures and how to purchase tickets. Be sure to keep your handbook close once you receive it.

Hats off to an amazing year of learning and community!!
Miss Wendi and the GCAPA CREW
This is an exceptionally well-run dance studio. The staff and teachers are all friendly and accommodating. Wendi is very knowledgeable on dance techniques and is detail-focused. At the same time, she understands how to engage well with young children and get them excited about the routines and why it’s important to master the dance techniques. I also appreciate how Wendi has created an atmosphere where the girls build each other up. I highly recommend this dance school!
This is my 11th year at GCAPA, and I was quite literally raised in this studio. All of the teachers are patient and understanding. I am so proud to be a part of the team. Even if I am not looking from the perspective of a parent, I highly appreciate the age-appropriate costumes and choreography because I personally am not comfortable with wearing anything too revealing. I have made many life-lasting friendships and my experience here has been amazing! Awesome studio; 100% recommended!
We took our daughter for her first dance lesson to try out the dance studio. It was such a great experience for my daughter that we immediately enrolled!
Grand Central Academy of Performing Arts truly is our home away from home. My girls have been dancing there since 2017 and they absolutely love it! They not only learn amazingly choreographed routines to perform, but they also learn the art of dance, and are making lifelong friends along the way!
My 6 year old daughter started at Grand Central Academy a few months ago  and i couldn’t be more impressed! Miss Wendi and Miss Abby have gone above and beyond in terms of helping me figure out what class has been right for her, answering various questions about classes, costumes, camps, etc. They are engaged and accessible to myself and all parents. My daughter’s instructor, Miss Melissa is so positive, warm, and encouraging and my daughter absolutely loves her. The environment is great and I couldn’t be happier about bringing my daughter to Grand Central.
My daughter is in her 6th year of dancing at GCAPA. Her technique, skills, and confidence has grown and developed quickly in this time. She absolutely loves it and always enjoys going to class. My husband and I appreciate the modest and age appropriate costumes and choreography. My daughter and I have both made friendships that will last forever and are truly grateful.
