From hip hop to ballet, contemporary dance, tap dance, singing and drama…

Dubai Opera may have had to close its doors in mid March, but they haven’t paused the performances by any means. Since then, they have been keeping busy with exclusive live online sessions and at-home talent competitions.

And now, the performing arts centre has just announced weekly online classes, which will be held every Tuesday, starting today June 9.

Dubai Opera is also offering the chance for participants to share their newfound skills on social media with the hashtag #DiverseDubaiOpera. When you share on social media, you’ll be in with a chance to win free online classes or classes at Diverse Studio over the summer period.

The first prize winner from each age group will win 10 free classes or a full week, and the second-place winner will receive five free classes. And no one walks away empty-handed. All participants will receive one free trial with the performing arts school.

Dubai Opera hopes the initiative will provide increased opportunities for children and teenagers to gain more knowledge in their favourite art forms, in hopes of developing the next generation of art lovers.
