07 09 2017 Performing Arts Classes for Toddlers and Under 7’s CHOICES By npas 0 Performing Arts Classes for Toddlers and Under 7’s At The National Performing Arts School we hold classes for toddlers and under 7’s in a number of venues including St. Matthews National School in Sandymount, Castleknock Parrish Hall in Castleknock and Loretto Abbey Girls School in Dalkey where we are about to launch a programme for 6-11 year olds. The classes available to take at these venues include Pre-School Ballet and Creative Ballet, Musical Theatre and Drama Classes, Jazz and Contemporary Classes and Hip Hop. We off the full Grade system of Ballet training for older children through The Royal Academy of Dance. Not all of our venues offer all classes so please make sure to check the school website and timetable to see what is available in your preferred venue. All of these classes serve as an introduction to NPAS and a fun and exciting part of your childs education, and we hope will eventually act as a gateway to our senior school which is currently at The Lir Academy, but will be returning to our home at The Factory on Barrow Street in late 2018. Every teacher at NPAS is a trained and qualified professional, many having come up through our school themselves. Qualifications vary from Masters Graduates in Drama at Trinity College to Graduates of The College of Dance and various Institutes of Further Education. Each teacher is experienced in teaching the age group they are working with at our school, and we feel that this is a hugely important part of working with young people. Many performing arts, dance and drama classes are being taught by people who have little or no qualification, who are not insured and who have no experience in teaching children and young people. All we do at NPAS is teach classes in the performing arts. It is our Love and our sole purpose, and we believe that once you walk in the doors of one of our centres you will see, and feel the difference. NPAS – Singing, Dancing and Acting with children and young people for almost 25 years! All classes are available to book online. NPAS – Be Who You Want to Be!!
