Dear Dancers and Families
The Owen Sound Academy of Performing Arts has an EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! This summer marks a transition in which OSAPA's artistic director Ann Milne is passing the torch of studio ownership on to Adela Bezemer-Cleverley. Adela has been training and teaching with the Academy for ten years, trained professionally at York University for five years, and is excited to begin this new venture as owner of the Academy and director of the Ballet and Contemporary programs, while Ann will continue to direct the Highland program.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
We recognize that some of the things that makes the Academy special are the friendly and welcoming atmosphere, quality of training, dedication to our students and families, and involvement in the community. It is very important to us that we continue to uphold these values and ensure that all of our dancers and families continue to have a positive and fulfilling experience at our studio. Ann and Adela are working closely together to ensure the smoothest transition possible for all involved, and we thank you for your patience and support in this journey.
WHAT WILL CHANGE?
Not a lot! Registration, schedules, and teaching methods will all remain consistent with what we have now. The only big change is the name, and the brand new website and social media pages that come with it!
The new studio name is OWEN SOUND DANCE ACADEMY! Please check out our new website, social media pages, and contact info linked below:
PHONE: (226) 668 8293
Like, follow, and save the above info to ensure you are up to date on all of the news as we move along! The current OSAPA website and social media pages will remain online until the end of September, at which point they will be removed to avoid confusion.
We would like to thank all of our dancers and families for their patience and understanding during this transition, and hope you are as excited as we are to see where this new adventure takes us! Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, or for more info!
