Advanced Acrobatics Troupe

The WAPS Advanced Acrobatics Troupe gives performers the chance to take their Acrobatics training and performances to the next level. This troupe requires students to be committed to attending each week, warming up before class starts, as well as rehearsaing and practising at home. Entry into this troupe is by audition or invitation only.

Age

The WAPS Advanced Acrobatics Troupe is open to students 11 years and over. Dancers should be committed, reliable and dedicated, and willing to participate in external performance opportunities, regardless of age.

Requirements

In order to join the Acrobatics Troupe, members must take Senior Advanced classes at WAPS. Troupe members are required to be committed and reliable team players, and as such we request that WAPS be notified in advance of any absences that affect attendance. Entry into the troupe is by audition or invitation only.

Opportunities

The Advanced Acrobatics Troupe will perform at a wide variety of events, both on television and live onstage. Acro Troupe students will be expected to perform in Dance Competitions (usually biannually), as well as at public and private events across Perth. In the past our students have performed at public & community events (Subiaco Craft Fair, Expresstival, Perth Heat baseball games, Bayview Terrace Festival, Disability Services Community Fair, Perth Christmas Lights Parade), televised events (Westcoast Fever Netball Flashmob event, regular appearances on Foxtel’s The Couch, Telethon, Channel 7 RAC Christmas Pageant, commercials), plus students may be given the opportunity to perform at private and corporate events as featured entertainers. The nature of these events requires performers to be punctual, rehearsed and professional representatives of WAPS. There may be extra transport and costume costs involved for students participating in external performances.
