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.

The class was fab and Louis’ energy was contiguous (even to me, from the kitchen). She had a great time and her 2 siblings, when they arrived home 10 mins before the end were agog with envy at what the class had built up to over the course of an hour.
 I know that it must be incredibly challenging to teach a bunch of kids online.  He really did a brilliant job and please pass along our commendations on how awesome we  think he is.
Obviously we would much much prefer to be having the class in person and are looking forward to when that will happen again. However one advantage of this is that I can see how the class unfolds and this insight is actually gorgeous.
Well done on creating a product that is just fabulous, in circumstances that are, to say the least, less than ideal.”
 Many thanks

“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!”
With heart,
