TESTIMONIALS

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)
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)
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
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)
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.
Naturelle, WAPS Junior Dance Team Member, Dance Excellence Tour (LA) 2018
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)
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 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
She had a great time on Saturday night, it was great to see her back on stage, after 3 very long years of illness. Definitely made our end of year, very special ? I would just like to thank Miss Emily, for being such a gorgeous teacher to the girls!!! She is really excited about coming back in 2017.
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
Something I’ve learned at DEX that I would not have experienced if I’d not attended, were lots more skills, and the experience of travelling on my own for the very first time! I achieved more dance skills and got more confident at meeting new people. It was fun exploring Disneyland Hollywood and Starbucks. From my Master Instructors, I learned to smile whilst dancing, show expression, give it your all, believe in yourself, and don’t care what anyone else thinks.
Scarlett, WAPS Intermediate Dance Team Member, Dance Excellence Tour (LA) 2018
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
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)
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)
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 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
Thank you Isabel for facilitating my daughter to trial both cheerleading and acro. Her teachers were so gorgeous as she gets super anxious, and she was armed with many questions that her teachers answered with grace! We are so grateful.
New Parent
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)
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)
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 🙂
