DRAMA SCENE was established in 2008 out of a passion to provide children and teens with professional skill based drama training. Based out of Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre (DUCTAC) in Mall of the Emirates, DRAMA SCENE provides it's students aged 3 to 18 years with the full dramatic skill set "Drama teaches children about perspectives, it shows them how to have empathy, and helps them build the vital skills of confidence, communication, concentration and cooperation " Says Ferne Reynolds Lategan". Founder & Creative Director of DRAMA SCENE.

DRAMA SCENE offers courses in Acting, Musical Theatre and Devised Performance. Classes are age specific and are taught by passionate drama professionals, who still continue to perform internationally themselves. We encourage our students 5 years plus to enter into the optional annual LAMDA examinations in order to measure their progress against an international standard and build up certification for their efforts. LAMDA is now the largest examination board of Speech and Drama and has gained a reputation of excellence as a Drama School in London. It boasts the likes of film director Sam Mendez as part of it's advisory council. LAMDA examinations are further accredited by QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority) providing nationally recognized qualifications.
