DPA Calendar

Info for our parents

Throughout each term, we work towards professional performances and events, and of course our special end of year DPA Annual Production and full-length Musicals.

DPA were thrilled to be the first Performing Arts and Dance School to be invited to perform their annual shows at Dubai Opera. Our DPA Annual Performance features all our DPA Students from our Academy and the Musical features our Youth Theatre Company. Our previous full-length Musical at Dubai Opera was ‘FOOTLOOSE’, as our Principal Johnny played the lead role of Chuck in the original West End cast!

Make-up classes shall be granted within 4 weeks from the date of request;
DPA reserves the right to refuse a makeup class if places are not available within the course as to not jeopardize safety and lessen the experience of the children who registered and paid for that class; Make-up classes should be redeemed within the same term.
