Cross Creek Ranch Resident Taps into New Dance School
Tiny dancers and pre-professional performers have a new place to pirouette, and its thanks to Cross Creek Ranch resident Angela Apel, co-owner of District Dance Company.
Angela and fellow owners Tara Tassio and Alyssa DiGiorgio will teach an array of classes including ballet, hip hop, jazz and tap to students ages 2 and up beginning Jan. 7. The studio is located at 29615 FM 1093. Serious dancers will have opportunities to audition for and join the studio’s competitive dance company. District Dance also will host princess-themed birthday parties where the birthday girl can dress in a gorgeous gown and sit on an oversized throne.
Angela’s dance resume is impressive. Her 15 years of experience includes jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical and acrobatics. As part of the elite Suzette's Masters of Dance company, she participated in numerous dance competitions, where the company was awarded several titles, Throughout high school, Angela was also on the varsity dance team. During that time, she was honored to be chosen as a member of the Shock Wave NBA dance team and was asked to join the dance team for the NBA Detroit Pistons.
We congratulate Angela, Tara and Alyssa on the opening of District Dance Company allowing young dancers to take their first steps toward the world of dance.
