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 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.
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.
Thank you so much for creating such a great and welcoming place and I’ll continue to recommend the studio to all of my friends. Hopefully I’ll be able to still come see the shows and support the girls in the future!
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.
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!
I have seen a huge improvement with her focus on dance and school work. I would like to thank all her dance teachers for guiding her and giving her the confidence to “give it a go
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 gra…
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.
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.
