About Us


Established for over 25 years, The WA Performance School is Perth’s premier performing arts academy. Based in Subiaco, we offer tuition in a variety of styles of dance, music, theatre, and exercise to students of all ages. Our philosophy is that dance and performance is for everyone, and the only pre-requisite should be PASSION!

We offer classes for toddlers, kids, teens and adults, encouraging those who want to take lessons for fun and recreation, and supporting students looking for professional training and even a career in the performing arts. We pride ourselves on our broad range of group classes and private lessons, and on the industry experience of our professional instructors and staff. With morning toddler classes, after school and Saturday classes for kids and teens, as well as evening classes for adults (with lots of options for beginners!), WAPS is always abuzz with excitement, creativity and fun!
