Events for Children
Welcome to the Nenagh Arts Centre page dedicated to events for children!
Below you will find information for all the upcoming performances for children coming to Nenagh Arts Centre in the near future.
Dotty the Dragon - Saturday 1st July, 3pm - Cost €8 (1 adult free with 2 kids) Free Adult tickets to be collected from the Box Office no later than Friday 30th June.
Presented by Blunderbus Theatre Company (UK)
Dotty is a baby Fire Dragon. She lives in a dusty old castle with her grumpy dad, Mr Dragon. She loves to watch the children playing in the village below, and wishes she could play with them too!
One day Dotty has a brilliant idea - she will fly down to the village and say hello! But will Dotty make new friends, or will the village folk chase her back home again?
Told with puppetry, song and high-energy storytelling, this fantastic family show is the perfect treat for little explorers and their grown-ups. There are lots of laughs and plenty of surprises, and there's even a fire-breathing dragon!
Summer Dance Camp - Monday 10th - Friday 14th July, 10am - 3.30pm - Cost €85 (10% reduction for 2 or more kids from one family)
Join us for a fun-filled week of dancing and activities with Bianca Paige Smith and Erris Burke. Aimed at children 7-12 years, the schedule will include 2-3 dance classes that will run daily with the aim of learning a full routine to perform at the end of the week. Classes include hip-hop, commercial/pop and musical theatre. We will also run a choreography workshop, allowing your children to create their own dances. If you wish to reserve a place please visit the Box Office to arrange a €20 deposit.
Bianca has a qualification in Contemporary Dance Performance from the University of Limerick as well as years of experience teaching and performing in many styles of dance. She currently teaches Youth Moves classes at Dance Limerick and tutors on the BA in Voice and Dance in UL.
Erris Burke is in her final year in the BA in Voice and Dance at UL. She is currently developing her final year project, which aims to explore the benefits of dance for children with autism. She has recently returned from a co-op experience in Ghana where she taught music and dance to children with special needs. She has a passion for teaching dance to young people.
