Having spent the latter half of this term rehearsing and devising, it’s great to finally be on our way to Dubai! During our stay, we will tour around a variety of different educational establishments and perform a 35 minute piece which we have created ourselves, based on the themes of the risk of extinction, conservation, and the continuing cycle of life. It will be a fantastic experience as we will be performing in many different locations and to varied audiences, as well as running workshops for students from other schools. We are really looking forward to being welcomed by Dubai College and our generous host families.
