Nenagh Arts Centre hosts and runs a number of different classes. Please contact the individual organisations or numbers below for more details:
BALLET FOR BEGINNERS
This class is aimed at children 5 to 8 years old. It's a fun introduction to ballet which will cover key ballet principles in a supportive environment. You will begin to develop core ballet skills, working on flexibility,
coordination and graceful movement. We hope to develop a more
advanced ballet class in the coming year.
Saturday’s at 2.15 pm (1-hour Class)
€8 per class
BALLET FITNESS FOR ADULTS
This class is suitable for complete beginners or for those who took classes as a child, so little or no experience is required. The focus is on developing posture, flexibility, musicality, balance and movement
co-ordination while learning the basic rudiments of ballet. It’s an excellent workout and more stimulating than a visit to the gym.
Saturdays at 3.15pm (1-hour Class)
€8 per class

CoderDojo is a movement orientated around running free not-for-profit coding clubs and regular sessions for young people. At CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more. Dojos are set up, run by and taught at by volunteers.
Dojos organise tours of technology companies, bring in guest speakers to talk about their career and what they do, and organise events. In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what they've been working on and so on. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable, kick ass experience. CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.
Notes: You will need to register for CoderDojo. You will need to bring a laptop. Borrow one from someone if needs be. Also a parent must be present if you are under 12! (Very important). If you are 12 or under, your parent must stay with you during the session.

"Life is made of choices. If you improve your world improves."
Yoga: Rest | Refresh 6:45pm – 7:45pm
Yoga: Elements 8pm – 9pm
Both classes are beginner friendly. However the Elements class has more challenge than the first. The 6:45pm class is intended for people with back care issues, people looking to relax etc. The 8pm class is for those looking for a bit more strong stretching. Regardless of the class and stretching, the emphasis is ultimately the true purpose of yoga: stepping outside of thought into the peace and stillness naturally within the human heart.
Donal qualified as a teacher in the Iyengar tradition of yoga in 2002 and spent five and a half years living with Buddhists deepening his understanding of mindfulness and meditation. He has taught yoga and mindfulness at the Dublin Buddhist Centre, Samadhi Yoga Centre, and to members of the Tipperary senior hurling team. He has also worked as a volunteer with groups of individuals in drug rehab, cancer support centres and centers for adults with special needs.
“I really enjoyed the sessions and disappointed that I did not start earlier. It was one hour a week that I could just switch off totally and concentrate on myself which normally I find hard to do”
"Donal has great experience and knowledge to share. His kindness and simplicity are wonderful."
Kinder Music For Toddlers:
