FIRE – Acro Dance Troupe
About Fire – Acro Dance Troupe
Fire, our Acro Dance Troupe gives performers the chance to take their Acrobatics training and performances to the next level. Fire is an open age troupe which performs both at competitions and community events around Perth. This troupe requires students to be committed to attending each week, warming up before class starts, as well as rehearsing, stretching and practising at home regularly. Entry into this troupe is by audition or invitation only.
The WAPS Advanced Acrobatics Troupe is open to students of all ages, though entry is by audition or invitation only. Dancers should be committed, reliable and dedicated, and willing to participate in external performance opportunities, regardless of age.
In order to join the Acrobatics Troupe, members must take Acro Dance classes at WAPS (all of which follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, see below for more information), as well as our Acro Dance TST class and one other dance class at WAPS. Troupe members are required to be committed and reliable team players, and as such we request that WAPS be notified in advance of any absences that affect attendance. Entry into the troupe is by audition or invitation only.
The Fire troupe will perform at a wide variety of events, both on television and live onstage. Troupe members will be expected to perform in Dance Competitions (depending on age), as well as at public and private events across Perth. In the past our students have performed at public & community events (Subiaco Craft Fair, Expresstival, Perth Heat baseball games, Perth Royal Show, Fringe World Festival, Bayview Terrace Festival, Disability Services Community Fair, Perth Christmas Lights Parade, Wembley Downs District Fair), televised events (Westcoast Fever Netball Flashmob event, regular appearances on Foxtel’s The Couch, Telethon, Channel 7 RAC Christmas Pageant, commercials), plus students may be given the opportunity to perform at private and corporate events as featured entertainers. The nature of these events requires performers to be punctual, rehearsed and professional representatives of WAPS. There may be extra transport and costume costs involved for students participating in external performances.
