Director, Michelle Burrell
We at the APTAD pride ourselves in strong dance training in a supportive family atmosphere. Here at Asbury Park Technical Academy of Dance our Motto is "Strive for Excellence".
Although our classes are primarily Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Tap, We work hard to inspire our students to expand their knowledge of different cultures, countries, and their traditional dance forms. The students are challenged to embrace the richness of their heritage and the passion of dancers who paved the way before them. As one student put it “You don’t just learn steps or how to do them but you also learn why and the history behind the movement. Here you don’t just take dance class you get a dance education.” As Ms. Burrell says “This is a dance School where dance brothers and sisters come together .”
