At the WA Performance School, we pride ourselves in delivering professionally organised and entertaining showcases, year after year. Every year since its inception over 20 years ago, WAPS has held an end-of-year concert showcasing the talent and hard work of its students. While it is not compulsory for our students to participate in the concert, it is certainly encouraged. The concert is a great opportunity for those looking for the chance to perform onstage, build their confidence, experience the excitement of performing in front of hundreds of people, and most importantly, have lots of fun in a fully supportive environment!

TESTIMONIALS

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)
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)
“Thank you, your studio and all the girls are just so kind, beautiful hearted and very inclusive. These qualities are hard to find in an industry that can be the opposite. I would highly recommend your studio to our friends and family.”
Michelle G., Parent
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 🙂
Gillian (Parent feedback for Birthday Party Package)
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
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)
The concert was fantastic! What a professional production! Congratulations to all involved & a special thanks to Miss Emily & Sylvia!
Jo
We wanted to say thank you to all of the teachers and assistants who have taught her so much over the last couple of years. She has really grown in her skill level and confidence, and I am very grateful for all the time taken for her, and also the faith that has been put in her abilities by her teachers. WAPS is an amazing dance school, and provided her with many opportunities that she would never have had otherwise.
Donna, parent
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.

I think we would be in deep dark depression if we couldn’t continue with dancing during COVID-19 lockdown.  It’s so important for the girls to continue to have this creative outlet as everything else seems to have “closed up” for undetermined lengths of time.  We look forward to our weekly interactions and hope to see your smiling faces in person again soon!
Julieanne, Parent
All of the students looked so happy & confident. You should be very proud.
Kate
My daughter always enjoys the drama class and comes home with big smiles every Tuesday. Thank you and the teachers for the teaching, encouragement and great opportunities. I can’t wait to see the performance in December.
Miwa, Parent
I would also like to say big thank you to all the WAPS team for the effort to teach the kids and organise the concert. It was amazing!!! Your work is invaluable. My Tiny Ballerina really liked the time spent at rehearsals and backstage. And she really loved participating in this gorgeous concert.
Emilia, Parent
I just wanted to let everyone know that the end of year concert was great! We were so impressed by all the performances and we have a great memory of our daughters first concert. We also want to thank Miss Sarah for being an outstanding dance teacher with a lot of patience. She is truly great at what she does and you can tell she loves her role!
Heather, Parent
My dance skills have improved dramatically since being taught by you. WAPS is by far the best dance school I have ever been to and you are the best coach. Thank you so much for everything!
Zoe (Student feedback on classes)
I just wanted to thank you for offering the class via Zoom. It’s so great for her to be able to join in with something fun every week and continue her dancing till things get back to being able to be out and about safely. It’s so important for children to be able to connect in this way and feel part of something familiar. This season, my boy has missed over 7 hours of soccer a week and I really feel for him not being able to have the physical activity and mental health benefits that group sports and being part of a team offers. They send videos of training exercises he can do in the yard, which is great, but just not the same.
Sue, Parent
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
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
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)
The concert was fantastic!! What talented students you have at WAPS. And the costumes are gorgeous!
Paula (Parent feedback on end of year concert)
I am so glad that not only I found dance but I found it at a place that has the most incredible staff and students. When you do something that is out of your comfort zone you want to be in an environment that makes you feel safe, secure and supported and that is exactly what you guys have here. Every time I come to dance I feel like I am with what family is supposed to be like and I love every minute of it. Whether I arrive in a positive headspace or not, I always leave at least slightly better or have challenged myself.
