AL BARSHA

DEDICATED TO AL BARSHA COMMUNITY DUCTAC, working back office roles and programming, since the organization started in 2006. She’s credited with bringing both quality and entrepreneurial spirit to the arts portfolio, and won’t hesitate to use her extensive network to recruit the best shows and talent from as afar afield as Shanghai, Berlin and New York. “You have to remember”, says Millie, “that the heart of DUCTAC is the range of courses we have to offer. These attract people from all walks of life, and allow them to reach a very high level in their chosen areas of interest. Typically, people have tended to hear about these courses by word of mouth, and many of them have an excellent level of attendance – especially after 3pm, through to late at night. We can teach a very wide range of arts. Take dance, for example, from salsa to ballet, to kathak – all are very popular and our rehearsal and performance facilities are exceptional. Or perhaps you want to learn pottery or ceramic arts. Again, we have all the facilities in place to do this. These courses really integrate us with the
