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

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
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
I want to say that your teachers are fantastic. Not only are they great at the choreography, dance technique and conveying across to the class how the movement is to look and feel but they are also beautiful people who really actually care about their students – I love their classes – I have so much fun in them and am looking forward to returning back to class hopefully term 1 next year.
Sarah (Student feedback on classes)
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 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
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)
It was excellent thank you. The dancer was so engaging and created such a lovely atmosphere of fun and joy.
Jodi, Hens Night Client
All of the students looked so happy & confident. You should be very proud.
Kate
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 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 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
I’d like to say thank you to WAPS staff for the end of year concert on Saturday and for all the hard work put in throughout the year, especially Miss Gina. Isabella has come a long way since the beginning of the year and built up confidence to do the concert. She had a great time and I couldn’t be prouder!
Melissa, Parent
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
“A BIG thank you to you for organising your wonderful performers. They were exceptional and the crowd adored them. Looking forward to working with you for future functions. And I spread your name around so hopefully my friends will contact you in the future.”
Pauline, Private Entertainment Client
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)
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 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
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)
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
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
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!
