WA Performance School

WA Performance School

Established for over 25 years, The WA Performance School is Perth’s premier performing arts academy. Based at Lords, the school offers tuition in a variety of styles of dance, music, theatre, and exercise to students of all ages.

Their philosophy is that dance and performance is for everyone, and the only pre-requisite should be PASSION!


July school holiday program

Join WAPS for fun and friendly workshops and taster classes for kids of all ages in the July school holidays.
Participating in school holiday workshops is a great way to make new friends, work with new guest instructors, try new styles of dance or performance, and to help get kids excited for the next term of classes.

Over the winter break we have the following exciting workshops scheduled, open to all children, whether current WAPS students or not. With options for kindy (3-5 years) students, pre-Junior (5-7 years), junior (7-10 years), intermediate (11-13 years) and senior (13-17 years), there's something fun for everyone to try!

Discounts available:
