TESTIMONIALS

The concert was fantastic! What a professional production! Congratulations to all involved & a special thanks to Miss Emily & Sylvia!
Jo
“A BIG thank you to you for organising your wonderful performers. They were exceptional and the crowd adored them. Looking forward to working with you for future functions. And I spread your name around so hopefully my friends will contact you in the future.”
Pauline, Private Entertainment Client
We all had an absolute ball I still have guests saying that thought it was amazing! Was great fun and something different would 100 percent recommend to other people!
Abbey, Hens Night Client
Dear Stella and team, Just a short note to say how incredibly impressed I was with today’s Junior concert. No doubt the logistics required to produce such a seamless event would have been huge from sourcing the costumes, ensuring each child was dressed and ready on time, the tight routines, communicating expectations to parents, coordinating the rehearsals etc etc. I commend you and your staff for such a professional and enjoyable production. No doubt the senior concert was a success too. My daughter only joined her tap class mid way through term 4 yet from day one she was made to feel at ease and encouraged to perform in the concert despite an obvious lack of experience. Her teacher Sarah was so gorgeous in making her immediately feel like she was an important and special part of the class. Anyway, congratulations again and hopefully now you can all relax in time for Christmas. See you next year!

Beau is such a lovely guy and a great teacher to the whole class and I had a lot of fun in the classes.
Julie, adult student
Dear WAPS Staff, Organisers, and parent helpers, Thank you for your amazing efforts in organising and managing such an entertaining and rewarding Junior Concert. It was a wonderful confidence-building exercise and it was heart-warming to see that the junior performers enjoyed themselves on stage, too. As a parent, I am sincerely grateful for how well you looked after the children backstage and it was charming to watch the teachers leading the younger ones on stage, especially the patient and graceful Miss Sarah (whom my daughter Zahra adores). We hope to enrol Zahra for the Friday afternoon Tiny Ballerinas class next year, so I’ll be getting onto it soon. Best wishes for a merry season and here’s to a gorgeous year ahead!

The best thing I achieved as a dancer on this trip was multiple turns. And it made me realise dance is something I want to do for the rest of my life. An instructor who really inspired me was Heidi Jarrett because she is always happy and energetic, even when she makes a mistake she just smiles. One of my favourite masterclasses was African Dance because it was very different to something I would usually do.

I’m so pleased we chose WAPS 2.5 years ago! I love that they always encourage and recognise positive behaviour, enthusiasm and commitment
Samantha, Parent
We really enjoy the classes! Emily is a great teacher, very patient and understanding and the classes are loads of fun!
Jessica (Student feedback on classes)
I have been very impressed and happy that she’s settled in and really loving it. She really likes you and your teaching as well so thanks for being so enthusiastic and attentive, she’s very comfortable with you.
Parent
I was so proud of how Ruby embraced every minute of the dance and seeing her dance back here (our weekly Wednesday Dalwallinu dance has started) her confidence, composure and projection to the (imaginary) audience (in our lounge room) has made a progressive jump disproportionate to normal development.
Sally, WAPS Parent Chaperone, Dance Excellence Tour (LA) 2018
Just a quick note to say thank you & Beau so much for a wonderful party today. The kids had a ball & I had a very easy, stress free day. Highly recommend it to my friends.
- Carole & Abby (Parent/Child feedback for Birthday Party Package)
All of the students looked so happy & confident. You should be very proud.
Kate
We wanted to say thank you to all of the teachers and assistants who have taught her so much over the last couple of years. She has really grown in her skill level and confidence, and I am very grateful for all the time taken for her, and also the faith that has been put in her abilities by her teachers. WAPS is an amazing dance school, and provided her with many opportunities that she would never have had otherwise.
Donna, parent
We all had an amazing time and really enjoyed it. Our instructor was lovely and we loved the games. I will definitely recommend you to anyone.
Manon, Hens Party Client
Thank you so much for being a part of the West Leederville Primary School Colour Carnival last week. We greatly appreciate your time in providing such outstanding entertainment for part of the day It was an extremely successful event and your group helped to create a positive and vibrant atmosphere. Please pass on our gratitude to your dance troupe members.
Sarah, Community Event Organiser
Thank you so much for creating such a great and welcoming place and I’ll continue to recommend the studio to all of my friends. Hopefully I’ll be able to still come see the shows and support the girls in the future!
Natassia, adult student
I want to say that your teachers are fantastic. Not only are they great at the choreography, dance technique and conveying across to the class how the movement is to look and feel but they are also beautiful people who really actually care about their students – I love their classes – I have so much fun in them and am looking forward to returning back to class hopefully term 1 next year.
Sarah (Student feedback on classes)
Just wanted to firstly say thank you very much for teaching Ava singing this last term, it’s emphasized the fact that she likes doing it. She loved being apart of your class and can you please pass on my thanks to Miss Emily and Miss Izzie as she loved participating in their little groovers class. Many thanks!
Samantha (Parent feedback on classes)
Just wanted to say thank you for attending the Chilli Fest – the ladies were great! They looked awesome and had so much fun having photos, dancing and providing atmosphere at the festival (even helping out at the chilli eating comp!)
Kara, The Marina Mindarie (Corporate roving entertainment booking)
I just wanted to say a big thanks for organising Emily, Izzie and Beau to attend The Funarium! They were so great with the kids and we got so much positive feedback from the classes.
