Creative & Performing Arts - Regent International School | British Curriculum | Best School in Dubai
Vocalise, Dramatise and Illuminate
Music enriches our school community

Music at Regent International School is fully embedded into every aspect of school life. Our music lessons aspire to see all our students as musicians, equipping them with not only musical skills, but the basic skills needed to develop the whole-child: building self-esteem, confidence, collaborative and leadership skills enabling each child to achieve their potential. Our students follow a dynamic programme, in line with the British Curriculum, built upon activities such as: singing, movement, instrumental learning, performing, listening activities, composing and developing ensemble skills.

The performance arts have become an integral part of our programme at RIS with the introduction of our performing arts squads: Vocalise, Dramatise and Illuminate. These art forms are delivered through our after school programme, twice weekly, giving our students the opportunity to develop their performance skills in the different areas.

Our annual musical is one of the highlights of the year at RIS. Over the past few years, our students have ‘travelled through the rabbit hole’, performing Alice in Wonderland, have ‘taken a magic carpet ride’ through Aladdin’s cave in Aladdin Trouble, have shown how much they ‘Like to Move It’ in our production of Madagascar Jr., and became ‘believers’ in our most recent production of Shrek the Musical Jr. Our performing arts squads also perform a showcase at the end of each academic year, to share their development over the year.

KHDA Report

We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.

We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.

Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.

There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.

RIS Parent

The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,

it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.

Head Girl 2018-19

Regent has given my daughter a new start.

This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.
