TESTIMONIALS

My daughter and I are so happy to have found this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful and genuinely caring, from the very first day we walked through the doors to now (a good 2 years later!!) The only school we’ve come across where not just another number!
J. Albassi, Parent
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
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
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)
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.

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)
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)
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
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)
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.
Kristy, Parent
I’d like to start this email by commending WAPS for the pro-active and innovative way you have managed the current COVID-19 situation we are experiencing – they way you were able to embrace and mobilize technology, and your excellent communications, to keep classes running has been really impressive. Sadly not all kids activities have managed to do this so as a parent now grappling with school and work at home, I am truly grateful and my daughter is loving her Zoom classes!
Christy, Parent
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
This has been our first year involved with a WAPS concert – Wow! It was most impressive, now have a well deserved break. A big thank you again.
Rebecca, Parent
I have been with WAPS for almost 4 years now and I have really seen the improvement in my dancing skills and really enjoyed going to every class! The teachers were really great too.
Melina, student
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)
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)
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
I was so impressed with the junior concert on Saturday. Seemed like there was no pressure on the kids, they just got to have fun, the acts moved through quickly and was really enjoyable! Thanks for all the effort in putting it together.
Tracey G
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
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
