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 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
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
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
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.

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)
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)
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 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)
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.

All of the students looked so happy & confident. You should be very proud.
Kate

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 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’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
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)
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 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
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 hope you have recovered after Saturday! What a spectacular evening! I just wanted to send a quick note to say what an amazing effort you all put in to produce a concert of such high standard. And all the kids did such an amazing job and all seem to just love it. On behalf of Sophia, I wanted to say a big thank you to you personally for the year too. She loves her Acro classes.
Emily, Parent
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.
