​​​​DPA Winter Term Dates: Saturday 9th September till Saturday 16th December 2017


At DPA our passion is performing! Our students perform in various shows and events throughout the year, such as the Dubai Winter Festival, H2's productions and pantomimes along with various shows at DUCTAC Theatre, including our own annual DPA production. As a result, we were the only performing arts school in Dubai to receive two nominations in the recent Time Out Kids Awards, for two of our productions that took place this year; our first ever full length musical 'Little Shop of Horrors' and our co-production of Pinocchio! We are pleased to inform you that we received a Time Out Kids Highly Commended award for Little Shop Of Horrors which Lisa and Johnny would like to dedicate is for all our talented students and our fab DPA Team.
