Top Performing Arts School in Dubai

Performing Arts Offering at Kent College Dubai

Kent College Dubai is a top international British Curriculum school in Dubai, with more than 135 years of tradition, history and legacy, owing to our close links with our sister school in Canterbury, England. As would be expected of a premium Dubai school, our Performing Arts Department is both dynamic and ambitious in its approach. It is a thriving and integral part of the school community, where students are encouraged to develop their creative skills and imagination both in lessons and through involvement in extracurricular activities (ECAs). A high percentage of our students choose to become involved in a school production or Performing Arts Club at some point in their school life, whether treading the boards or experiencing life behind the scenes.
