ABOUT US

FAME School of Performing Arts, founded in 2000, is designed as a unique program aimed at fostering the overall artistic development of young performers.  The students are involved in all aspects of performance: singing, dancing, acting, and even set design.  Skills such as character study and development, stage presence and public speaking, strength and co-ordination, creativity, self-confidence, discipline, and self-respect are emphasized.

 

In June of 2017 FAME School Of Performing Arts closed its studio location in Canada as the studio owner relocated to the United Arab Emirates for exciting opportunities.  New for FAME’s 2018/19 season, FAME is pleased to offer our specialized musical theatre and show choir intensives on site for private schools in Dubai.
