As we look ahead to September we are sad to know that quite a few of our students will not be coming back due to them leaving Dubai.
Crischaela Vallender and Ella Oberg will be leaving us to persue professional careers in the industry after having gained places at Laine Theatre Arts and Mountview respectively. Between them, the girls got offered places at Laine , Doreen Birds, Urdang, London Studio Centre which are all the most established Performing Arts colleges in London. Harrison Wile - another of our ex-students who left us only a short time ago, got awarded the Betty Laine Scholarship during the audition process and will be joining Crischaela at Laine Theatre Arts.
Congratulations everybody, we can't wait to follow your progress. Some students will also be leaving with their families and we are very sad to see them go. We would like to wish everyone the best of luck and we really hope that you continue your training in your new home.
We would also like to say congratulations to Zoe Stephenson who was awarded a scholarship at this year's Laine Theatre Arts Summer School to come back next year and study for free. This scholarship is only handed to one boy and one girl every year - excellent work Zoe!
On that note, we would also like to announce that Tina, Sara, Roberta and Rachel will not be returning in September. Tina has been a great addition to the ballet team whilst all of the Mini's will for sure miss Sara greatly. Roberta has been a teacher with Diverse for three years and has been an asset to the Contemporary and Dance Fusion department (not to mention her stunning costumes in our events division). Rachel has been a member of the Diverse teaching faculty for a whopping seven years and has consistently produced beautiful work throughout the year, particularly in the show.
Thanks to all for their dedication and hard work over the years and best of luck with your new ventures.
