TESTIMONIALS

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.

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!
May & Zahra (Parent/Student feedback for end of year concert)
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)
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)
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)
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.

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)
She really enjoyed the classes and I want to thank the instructors for their care for the kids. We were only with your school for a term though we were made very welcome and my daughter had a lovely time. When we move back to Perth in a few years I’ll be sure to look at re-enrolling her.

Something I learned from an older dancer was that it’s ok to be unsure. Some of the dancers who inspired me most today were the adults from WAPS because I hope I can come to Dance Excellence every year til I’m that age. After our IPB performance, I felt accomplished but also sad that it was over!
Poppy, WAPS Junior Dance Team Member, Dance Excellence Tour (LA) 2018
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 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)
The concert was fantastic!! What talented students you have at WAPS. And the costumes are gorgeous!
Paula (Parent feedback on end of year concert)
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
Thanks for putting on such a fantastic concert again this year. Merry Christmas to all WAPS teachers. You are an amazing bunch of people and my girls are so proud to be part of your dance school.
Rebecca (Parent feedback)
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)
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)
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
Congratulations to all those involved in last nights performance. It was a amazing and to see that many talented people perform was wonderful. It was our first concert and Tayha was blown away and can’t wait until next year. Again, congratulations to all.
Sue (Parent feedback for end of year concert)
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
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
Hi Sarah, A big thank you to you, Beau, Stella and Cam today! Nicholas told me his party was awesome! He really enjoyed the games and learning some new dance moves. Thank you for making it so easy for me to organise 🙂
