The National Performing Arts School Summer Camps have been running during July and August for almost 30 years. Each Summer we welcome Students who have been with us as well as lots of new Students to experience what the school has to offer. We often recommend that children and young people who are new to NPAS take a Summer Camp Course to see what classes the would like to do during the school year. The choices of camp stretch across everything NPAS has to offer. From Dance to Drama, and Musical Theatre to Film Making, there really is something for everyone. This year we are introducing Summer Camp for 4-6 year olds, so everyone from 4 years to 16 can come and join in the fun. With some of the best and most highly experienced teachers, and super cool venues, our Summer Camps are exactly what anyone interested in the performing arts is looking for. Summer Camp is a special time of year for NPAS when you get to spend a week with Students, and you get to meet and make new friends. There are also theatre trips which are unforgettable. Every year we have a huge number of repeat students who love coming to spend time with us each Summer. We really can’t recommend these courses enough for anyone who enjoys theatre, film, musicals, acting or dance. There is no better way to spend a week or two during Summer, and with the following options we have something for everyone! See you in Summer 2022!
Summer Camps 2022
MUSICAL THEATRE & DANCE CAMP
If you are always listening to The 100 Greatest Musical Songs on Spotify, or if you can’t get enough of Hamilton, Six and Wicked, then this is the Camp for you! Our Musical Theatre Camp is a whopper week filled with all the latest and greatest musicals from The West End and Broadway. Our team of Singing, Dancing and Acting Tutors will lead you through a week of fun and theatre from the moment you arrive in the morning on the first day, to the last minute on the Friday. Theatre Dance, amazing routines, history of musicals and so much more will all form part of this week. And there is even a chance to go and see a West End Production of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the Mecca of Irish Musical Theatre – our Neighbour, The Bord Gais Theatre. This course combines so many aspects of what we do at NPAS that we feel it is perfect for everyone! We will see you Somewhere Over the Rainbow in Ringsend!
This year we are thrilled to have three age groups, including our fantastic 4-6 year old NPASers!. We can’t wait wait to see our little Olivers, Annies and Matildas, and our older Alexander Hamiltons and Elphebas!
Be the best Dancer you can be with all the fun of our Summer Dance Camps. This Camp will cover Dance styles like Contemporary, Jazz and Hip Hop. Each Day will include warm up class, and stretch, before getting stuck into various different routines. Dancing to the coolest new tunes, and classic songs, you will be dancing your way home after day one, and dancing your way back into us for the week. The level on these courses is general, so it is open to anyone who is a budding dancer, and to those who are more experienced. Everyone will get to work at their own level and pace, with no one left behind! At NPAS we are all about joining in and never feeling left out. So whether you are a confident dancer or a novice, Summer Dance Camp will provide you with a happy, super fun experience! See you on the Dance Floor!!

DRAMA & MAKE A MOVIE CAMP
Hey NPAS Hope you are all doing well, Thanks a million for offering Lana a spot in the NPAS summer camp. What Lana enjoyed most from the week she had with you guys was a sense of normality, things finally in her eyes getting back to normal, doing what she loves most being herself, interacting, singing and dancing. Most importantly being with friends new ones that she had met at the week long camp and old ones she's known through the years she's attended NPAS. The camp has also helped Lana decide her choice in classes she wishes to take come September and if Lana could change anything, NPAS summer camp needs to be on for the whole summer!
My child was offered a place in the NPAS summer camp through their scholarship programme . My child suffers from anxiety and lockdown has been hard. The week they spent at the camp was amazing for them & their confidence to reenter the world. They loved all the dances & songs they did & you could see a beaming smile on the video of the Friday showcase. Thank you all in the NPAS family for your kindness & understanding and being such a safe space for those who need it.
