“Thanks so much NPAS,!!

I am delighted to have this book and read all the fantastic New Writing.
Jill’s piece ‘No Mask Today ‘ brought tears to my eyes and I’m still moved by it as I write this email! I haven’t read all the fantastic work yet, but am tremendously impressed by what i have read. I really think this is an important piece of work that documents the experiences of NPAS students and teachers during the strangest of times.
Thank You NPAS for being the fantastic school you are !  the value of the work that you do is immense . “

Testimonials


Dear Jill and Eamon,

I have been very busy over the past year with my leaving cert and moving to London for university.
I’m sorry I didn’t get to write this sooner.Thank you both so much for everything you have done for me throughout all my amazing years at NPAS. NPAS was a huge part of my life growing up. A part that I will cherish forever. I have so many wonderful memories when I think back to my time dancing and performing. You always made me feel welcome and encouraged me to do my best. Taking classes strengthened my confidence, communication skills and dancing technique. Every Saturday I looked forward to spending hours dancing and spending time with friends who shared the same passion as me. NPAS is a place where anyone is free to express themselves, a place of encouragement, creativity and fun. I miss it everyday. I have so many amazing things to look back on. Performing onstage, being on TV, flash mobs and so much more. All thanks to you. I hope everything is going well and I wish you all the best. Thank you for always supporting me.

Kind Regards,
Rebecca Hughes-Moore 🙂


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,

Laura



"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."
