Alexander Academy expanded in September 2012 by establishing the nonprofit Alexander Academy Performing Company.
The Company's mission is to provide affordable performance opportunities to Maui's dancers by supporting confidence, and inspiring physical and emotional growth. AAPC is a non-competitive company that showcases our students’ talent through on-stage performance. Performing gives dedicated dancers an opportunity to develop adaptability, give back to our community through dance, learn the value of commitment, hard-work, and respect; and experience being part of a team.
All students are offered two performance opportunities (Spring and Fall Semesters). While all performances are optional, we encourage performance as an important aspect of dance training. The experience of performing helps build self-esteem and confidence, which can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong college and job interview skills. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of collaborating as a team to create the best end result.
Auditions are held at the beginning of Spring and Fall Semesters, providing valuable experience for future endeavors.
In the same spirit as the school, the Performing Company offers scholarships to dancers who are unable to perform due to financial barriers.
