The WA Stage School was established in 1974 by Max and Heather Ogier. In 1996, Max and Heather handed the school over to Renae O’Neill (nee Alessi) and since then, the school has gone from strength to strength, and is now the school of choice for many budding young performers in Perth.
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, free from the pressure of competitions and examinations.
We offer tuition in a wide range of genres, including Jazz/Hip Hop/Funk, Cheerdance, Acro, Ballet, Contemporary, Tap, Singing & Musical Theatre and specialised Toddler and Adult programs. But above all else, our classes are focused on HAVING FUN!
Many of our students have gone onto 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.
We would love to welcome you to the WASS Family – whatever your reason for joining WA Stage School, you are guaranteed high quality training and amazing memories and friendships to last you a lifetime…oh, and LOTS OF FUN!
