What WSBPA means to me…
Couldn’t be better in any way, teachers go above and beyond, Never want to leave.
WSBPA is a place where i have learned valuable life lessons. I have been taught the importance of hard work and discipline, dedication and perseverance. WSBPA is a home away from home where i have been show that family isn’t just limited to bloodline.
It has given me the confidence to do what I love and has taught me so much about performing. I have been taught things I would never learn anywhere else. I have been treated so well and always love coming to singing and dancing class. This is my favourite place to be and WSBPA means the world to me.
WSBPA was like my second family growing up. I started as a little 3 year old and I grew up here. Most of my fondest memories have happened here in WSBPA and I’m so thankful to all the teachers that helped me throughout the years to grow and mature. I know that the friends and memories I’ve made here will be my lifelong friends. Dance has bonded us in a way that’s difficult to describe. WSBPA has reared all of us Honohans and I can’t thank you all enough.
The WSBPA has been such a huge part of my childhood. In my time here I have learned so much more than ballet and modern dance. I have made life-long friends here and will never forget the great moments I have had here, both on and off the stage.
WSBPA means everything. The school and staff gave me more than just dancing lessons. It gave me life lessons that I will never forget.
My favourite memories of my childhood and teenage years are of evenings spent in the studio in John Street with some of the best people, who soon became a second family. The best years of my life I’m sure! x
The strongest of friendships and unforgettable memories. For me, dance is for life now and I have WSBPA to thank for that.
THE WORLD! A place where you can truly be yourself and also discover who you are. The people you meet will stay with you for life – there’s no bond quite like a bond made through the love of dancing. Thank you for the most wonderful memories! 🙂
To me, WSBPA is my childhood. Your classmates slowly grow into family, teachers become like second parents and the studio becomes your second home if not your first! The WSBPA will always hold a special place in my heart and mind with unforgettable memories with people that I know will be my friends for life.
The WSBPA has been my second home since I was 3. Words cannot explain how special the WSBPA is to me. So many memories and opportunities I will cherish forever. It’s a special place with wonderful friends and teachers.
The WSBPA is a place where I have made a million memories over my 14 years here and each one never fails to bring a smile to my face. From seemingly endless rehearsals, to buckets of ice for my feet and every moment of friendship in between – I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I know that the friends I have made here will always have a place in my heart. I really didn’t know when I walked in the door aged 5 for the first time that I would have tears in my eyes leaving it, 14 years later.
