OUR DANCING SCHOOL STORY
“To grow a family of creative individuals who celebrate the magic of performance”
WA Stage School was established in 1974 by Max and Heather Ogier and the school has since earnt a reputation as one of Perth’s leading dance schools. We pride ourselves on our family environment, where the art of dance and performance can be studied in a supportive atmosphere of fun and learning. Our main focus is for students to learn the art of performance and be free from the pressure of competitions and examinations.
We offer classes in a wide range of genres, including Jazz, Hip Hop, Cheerdance, Acro, Ballet, Contemporary, Tap, Musical Theatre and specialised Toddler and Adult programs. But above all else, our classes are focused on HAVING FUN!
All genres are available at both of our studios, located in Malaga and Booragoon. Both locations have two fully equipped studios with everything your little performer needs; semi-sprung flooring, ballet barres, mirrors, air-conditioning, acro equipment, sound equipment for our singers. These are all provided to ensure our students get the best possible introduction to performing in a safe and comfortable environment.
Many of our students have gone on to achieve successful careers in the world of show business, including roles in professional productions of musicals such as A Chorus Line and South Pacific, lead dancer roles in resort hotels in many parts of the world, Dance Captains on international cruise ships and regular corporate performances around Perth.
When you join WA Stage School, you join a family. Family values run in our veins – we have multiple examples of up to three generations of the same family currently participating in classes! This is something that we are so proud of, and something we believe sets us apart from many other schools. We dance purely for the love and joy it brings to our hearts and this is being passed through WASS dancers of generations past, and many more generations to come. Attending classes at WA Stage School feels like coming home and it is a very special thing to be a part of.
We would love to welcome you to the WASS Family – whatever your reasons are for joining WA Stage School, you are guaranteed high quality training, amazing memories and beautiful friendships to last you a lifetime.
