We currently live out of the zone in HC but have a child going into year 8 in 2015 who has been identified as gifted in Dance. According to their website APHS offers extensive areas of study in Performing arts and having visited today, on the face of it their facilities are probably more impressive than at her current school (HC R-12), BUT we would like to hear your experiences of the school in general and also with any specific experiences of the balance of education for budding dancers or actors alike.
She does attend extra curricular dance lessons but we would love her to attend a school that offers regular opportunities for growth in these areas also.
(And just to say private education is currently out of the question due to financial limitations).
PS I should probably add that we're passionate about helping her pursue dance because she has a specific learning disorder that makes many other areas of her education extremely challenging and she currently generally dislikes school.
