The Academy of the Performing Arts is located in Shelby on Lafayette Street. They are near Craig and Berry, and just down the way from the Education Station. It's a gymnastic school, and this dance school really knows their stuff. I first became familiar with them when a student in one of my classes started taking lessons from there. I was very impressed. Since then I have seen their students performing in a wide array of places. The last time I seen them was at the county fair. I simply loved watching them. I recommend the Academy of the Performing Arts of Shelby! They are very good!
