I just wanted to say a big thanks for organising Emily, Izzie and Beau to attend The Funarium! They were so great with the kids and we got so much positive feedback from the 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.
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.
Beau is such a lovely guy and a great teacher to the whole class and I had a lot of fun in the classes.
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.
We really enjoy the classes! Emily is a great teacher, very patient and understanding and the classes are loads of fun!
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.
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.
I was so proud of how Ruby embraced every minute of the dance and seeing her dance back here (our weekly Wednesday Dalwallinu dance has started) her confidence, composure and projection to the (imaginary) audience (in our lounge room) has made a progressive jump disproportionate to normal development.
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.
