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

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.
Rebecca, Adult Dance Student
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
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
Just wanted to firstly say thank you very much for teaching Ava singing this last term, it’s emphasized the fact that she likes doing it. She loved being apart of your class and can you please pass on my thanks to Miss Emily and Miss Izzie as she loved participating in their little groovers class. Many thanks!
Samantha (Parent feedback on classes)
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
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.

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)
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)
Thank you so much for providing the virtual classes during COVID-19 lockdown… It not only provides an activity for our children  but a way to maintain some sense of normality and routine in this unsettling time. Your dedication to the students is greatly appreciated.  It is a great way for them to maintain some skills, connection with their dance community and of course have fun!!
Anne, Parent
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)
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
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
The concert was fantastic!! What talented students you have at WAPS. And the costumes are gorgeous!
Paula (Parent feedback on end of year concert)
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
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
A big thank you as the concert was fantastic – we thoroughly enjoyed it – thank you to everyone involved as I’m sure it was a lot of work. Very well organized for us families!
Heather, Parent
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
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 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)
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.
