Ireland’s Premier Performing Arts School & Agency
THE NATIONAL Performing Arts School
The National Performing Arts School has been providing classes to children of all ages and of all abilities for over 30 years in Dublin.
“The NPAS Ethos can be summed up by our commitment to the power of the Arts to support a persons overall holistic development which in turn supports the growth of strong and supportive communities. There are no Arts without community and no community without Arts. NPAS is about feeling IN and never Feeling OUT”
The end-of-yea Show will be in The Olympia Theatre on May 17th and 18th 2024. ALL classes are in the show, including Castleknock’s two Musical Theatre Classes. We would love our Dalkey Students’ to come into Lir and Audition in January. You will be able to book in through your Easy Payments Plus Account. These auditions are a GREAT experience with our super friendly staff and are for LEAD roles. There are only a handful of lead roles, so be ready with your Song, piece of Drama, or Dance. Dress up, stand out and go for it!! You are all brilliant.

A Word from
Actor & Past student
“The most important thing is that you enjoy it. That’s what NPAS is about and why my time there was so important. The students are on their own individual journeys, whether it’s through Dance, Drama, Singing or Acting ….
NPAS provides them with a fantastic outlet for it all.”
– Colin Farrell
What parents are saying…
“Thanks NPAS team!!!
Those classes were a godsend!! Both Emma and Eva really looked forward to them every week and really enjoyed them! Unfortunately not the in-person 4 hour extravaganza of old but that hour every week made the world of difference…
Lovely idea giving the cert and write up!
Please pass on my thanks to both teachers!
Here’s to a more normal term next time (everything crossed).”
“I want to drop you guys this line about Louis’ 11am Musical Theatre class this morning. My daughter attended from our living room.
“I just want to echo the lovely message on your website from another parent regarding the zoom classes. To be honest I held some trepidation on whether the ballet class would translate via zoom especially as children can find it difficult to concentrate at times and given the potential for distraction at home. I was privy to the class on Saturday afternoon (whilst in the kitchen, doing the laundry of course! money never sleeps :P), but what was emerging from the laptop, the energy and connection exuding from the teacher and how she engaged Lucy Mae and the other girls was amazing. It is a sheer delight to witness the magic that unfolds in an NPAS class and even to see how it translates digitally. A sincere well done to you all for navigating this difficult unpredictable time and for working so hard to maintain and provide a creative outlet that is so intrinsic for our kids during this time!”
