Diverse Choreography Performing Arts School was established in Dubai, in 2008 by the husband and wife team, Scott & Lisa Marshall. We are proud to say, that Diverse Performing Arts School is the ONLY dance and theatre school in the Middle East who provide training in ALL aspects of dance and theatre, all in one place! Diverse Performing Arts School is an innovative, Dance and Theatre School offering training opportunities for the complete beginner right through to the young performer heading toward a professional performing career.
We offer an array of classes for students aged 3 – 18. For those that want to focus on dance we offer a strong and varied programme which includes dance fusion (jazz), contemporary, ballet, hip hop, breakdance, modern, tap, commercial pop, jazz funk and acro/gymnastics. During our classes we focus on technique, conditioning and performance. Each class is structured specifically to include all of these elements. For those interested in singing and drama combined with dance we run Musical Theatre classes which include singing, dance and drama within the weekly lesson. We also offer private singing and drama lessons on an individual basis with our teachers in which students have the opportunity to take exams.
Our teaching faculty is made up of a team of professional and ex-professional performers who’s experience include numerous West End shows, TV and film credits and successful careers commercially in music industries across the world. Our team are passionate about passing on their knowledge and getting the best out of our students.
We produce two yearly shows, one of which at the Madinat Theatre Jumeirah which has received a Timeout Kids Award for ‘Best Local Theatrical or Music Performance’ two years running. Our shows give children the chance to put their training into practice and embrace the professional performing experience.
We also run ballet, tap, modern, drama and singing exams in which students study the syllabi of world renowned governing bodies, the RAD, ISTD, Trinity and LAMDA respectively.
Diverse also runs an event sector in which we provide performers for professional events. Our students have had the opportunity to perform for various clients such as Level Kids, Red Tag, Dubai Parks and Resorts and Qasr Al Hosn all in 2017 alone! Some of our students were also given the opportunity to perform in the Dubai World Cup opening ceremony in 2014 and 2017, as well as various National Day celebrations.
Training at Diverse has lead many of our students to be accepted into prestigious colleges and performing arts academies in the UK and USA. Some of which include Laine Theatre Arts, Arts Educational, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, The Urdang Academy, Guildford School of Acting and Berklee College of Music. Many of today’s West End performers are past students of the colleges listed above and we are proud to be part of their journey into the West End for some of our students.
Whether you enjoy performing in live shows, wish to further your knowledge through exams, are looking for a career in performing arts or simply want to have fun, Diverse has something for you.
