TESTIMONIALS

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
Hi Stella, What an amazing day – the performances were outstanding. You should be very proud of having put on a very professional, enjoyable show. Credit to the performers of course but you and your amazing team did a fabulous job. Please pass on my thanks and compliments to your team. Thank you very much!”
Fran (Parent feedback for end of year concert)
Just wanted to send you a big big thank you for all your help in coordinating Shelley’s hens night on Saturday! Everyone had a fabulous evening. Claire was amazing! It’s not easy rounding up 35 very loud women but she did a superb job! So please pass on my praise! Will definitely contact you in the future and pass on your website to others. You definitely took the stress away… Thanks again!!
Michelle (Hens Night Client Feedback)
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!

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.
Andrea, The Funarium
Dance in America is something that I believe you just have to experience to get a real appreciation for this art. By getting to be a part of the tour, it truly opened my eyes to just what I can be capable of, even if I am of a non traditional age to be dancing and learning new skills. It helped me form new dreams, and to me, that alone makes the whole experience so worth it.
Kirsten, WAPS Adult Dance Team Member, Dance Excellence Tour (LA) 2018
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)
Congratulations to all of WAPS staff it was a terrific concert, credit to you all. Molly has come so far I’m most appreciative.
Nicole (Parent feedback on end of year concert)
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 Sarah. It was a fantastic night and everyone was so impressed with your performers! They did a fantastic job and it was so much fun 🙂 The bride was delighted with everything too!
Makeila (Hens Night Client Feedback)
Big thank you for a gorgeous night! Fabulous Christmas to you all, thank you for making Chanelle’s year so special she has had a wonderful first year at WAPS.
Janette (Parent feedback on classes)
Dancing at DEX was an unforgettable experience that has taught me so much as a dancer and educator. To learn from some of my idols and perform on an international scale was incredible and the lessons learned and friends made will stay with me for a long time! Seeing the growing confidence and boost in skills of all WAPS dance team members has been fantastic and I can see the long-term benefits of the trip will be felt in the studio for years to come.
Sarah, WAPS Senior Dance Team Member, Dance Excellence Tour (LA) 2018
I have seen a huge improvement with her focus on dance and school work. I would like to thank all her dance teachers for guiding her and giving her the confidence to “give it a go
Barbara, Parent
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
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!
Amy (Parent ​feedback for end of year concert)
I have nothing but positive comments! WAPS has an amazing vibe and classes were fun and I always left feeling happy and accomplished! I used to get very shy about the thought of attending dance classes but WAPS was such a judgement free zone it made me feel comfy and able to enjoy myself!
Elise (Student feedback on classes)
Grace always loves going to dance and is very passionate about it and absolutely loves being under your extremely talented guidance. The concert was amazing and you must be commended on your pieces. They were not only outstanding but stand outs! Well done Stella!
Kate (Parent feedback on classes)
Maddy has thoroughly enjoyed dancing this year, especially her ballet! Your teaching and encouragement has really helped her learn and improve as a dancer. She is really looking forward to next year!
Lisa (Parent feedback on classes)
WOW! Every year I think you can’t top the previous year….but you did it again! As always, sensational costumes, great music and fantastic entertainment.
Jo (Parent feedback on end of year concert)
My daughter left your class yesterday on cloud 9! She was so happy with her progress and the fact that you acknowledged her progress in front of the class. The girls in the group have been so supportive and helpful. Your class is the highlight of her week. THANK YOU!
Amanda, parent
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.
