We are so happy with the fun and learning to be had at Northern School of Performing Arts. Our 10-year-old daughter has gone from strength to strength since she began last year. Her confidence has absolutely blossomed, to the point she auditioned and won the lead role in her school production. In her own words, 'there is never a day you don't enjoy!'

"We feel so fortunate to have this wonderful opportunity for our child" Northern School of Performing Arts has been a god-send to our family. It has allowed our little 'entertainer' to let lose the zest to express her self through dance, speech and singing. The music is modern and fun, the teachers are enthusiastic, down to earth, experienced, and they adore the children.

Just wanted to thank you for the performance concert last night in Orewa. My daughter has only been in class for three weeks but looked great doing her little bits. She, and I both love Northern School of Performing Arts.

We've been to another dance company before and none compare to NSPA! They treat their students like family, and such a fun environment. Amazing teachers who are great with all their students no matter what their dance ability.

Absolutely love watching my daughter develop her dance skills with the help of the outstanding teachers at NPA. She is excited to go every week and always has fun. Thank you for the wonderful job you do with her.

"She is projecting herself with such confidence" I just wanted to let you know how much our daughter is enjoying her classes. It is something she really looks forward to each week!

"Ruby was over the moon with her Trinity result." A huge thank you to the wonderful team . Ruby worked hard and practiced her pieces but what also made it possible was the passion and energy that all the teachers bring to classes, emails and additional classes to calm nerves and build confidence. An extremely professional bunch.
