19 09 2017 Performing Art Classes for ages 7 to 18 CHOICES By npas 0 Performing Art Classes for ages 7 to 18 years Continuing on from a blog about classes for toddlers and under 7’s we now go on to discussing Performing Art Classes for ages 7 to 18, a time when kids and teenagers really come into their own and have a feeling about who they want to be. As children get slightly older we offer a greater choice in the classes that are available to them. We generally divide classes into 7-11 years and 12-18 years, but this can change slightly depending on the class and the venue you are attending. Musical Theatre, Drama, Ballet, Tap Dance, Jazz Dance, Hip Hop, Contemporary Dance, Film Production and Singing are some of the classes we offer to these age groups. Classes in Musical Theatre and Drama are available in our Castleknock Centre, with classes in Hip Hop and Contemporary and Musical Theatre available at our Centre in Loreto Dalkeys fabulous new Hall. Please make sure to check the timetable as all classes are not available in all venues. The benefits of your children taking classes with us are huge. A boost in confidence is one of the first signs of the NPAS effect on our students. Parents are often surprised and sometimes even shocked with how much our school can benefit a young person in their ability to be comfortable in situations they may never have felt comfortable in before. From public speaking to performing on stage, our students gain a feeling of self-assuredness from their time with us. We have always realised and emphasised the fitness benefits in taking Dance class. Whether it be Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Tap Dance or Hip Hop, all of these classes benefit students in co-ordination, endurance, cardio vascular and general fitness levels. An ability to dance, and to work and move with rhythm, is a great gift for life and it is a gift you are giving your children by sending them to our school. All we do at the National Performing Arts School is Teach. It is our passion and our sole purpose. We hope that you will come and take class with us and that you see the difference that NPAS can make in your children’s lives. All classes are available to book online. NPAS – Be Who You Want to Be!!
