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 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’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
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)
It was excellent thank you. The dancer was so engaging and created such a lovely atmosphere of fun and joy.
Jodi, Hens Night Client
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
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
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)
She had a great time on Saturday night, it was great to see her back on stage, after 3 very long years of illness. Definitely made our end of year, very special ? I would just like to thank Miss Emily, for being such a gorgeous teacher to the girls!!! She is really excited about coming back in 2017.
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
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
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.
- Carole & Abby (Parent/Child feedback for Birthday Party Package)
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
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
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)
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)
Oscar, his friends and all the parents had the most amazing time, and it was all because of how great the Urban Grooves party was run! There were smiles for days in our household, rewatching videos of the dances they created and the games they all played! Kids birthday parties are stressful. Honestly yourself and WAPS not only made this the most memorable birthday party Oscar has ever had but by far the most enjoyable for everyone, siblings, friends, parents and of course the birthday boy!!
Angela, Kids Party Client
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
Thank you Isabel for facilitating my daughter to trial both cheerleading and acro. Her teachers were so gorgeous as she gets super anxious, and she was armed with many questions that her teachers answered with grace! We are so grateful.
New 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
Something I’ve learned at DEX that I would not have experienced if I’d not attended, were lots more skills, and the experience of travelling on my own for the very first time! I achieved more dance skills and got more confident at meeting new people. It was fun exploring Disneyland Hollywood and Starbucks. From my Master Instructors, I learned to smile whilst dancing, show expression, give it your all, believe in yourself, and don’t care what anyone else thinks.
