Turning Pointe | Professional, Friendly & Fun Dance Classes | Dubai, UAE

Turning Pointe was founded by Donna Dempsey in 1996. Originally called The Dance Centre it changed its name in 2005 to Turning Pointe to reflect the fact that it has many, many studios throughout the UAE not just one centre. Donna also felt it is a turning point in a childs life when they start school which is often the same year they start their dance classes.

As a dance school, Turning Pointe offers a wide choice of classes to suit all kinds of students. The most popular genre is Classical Ballet, following The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Syllabus and gearing the students towards their RAD ballet examinations. These classes are offered to 3years and above. Over the years the number and ability of the ballet students increased enormously and in 2010 Turning Pointe Youth Ballet (TPYB) was established. The Youth Ballet performs a full length ballet in February of each year with rehearsals and auditions starting in October. TPYB is open to all our students from Grade 1 ballet and above.

Hip Hop, Modern, Street Jazz, Jazz2Pop and Glee Club are the other genres of dance Turning Pointe offers. These classes start at 3 years old with our little Baby Boppers right up to 18years. Turning Pointe welcomes both the student who works towards a professional career in dance as well as those who dance purely for the joy of it and the benefits it brings to everyday life. The training the students receive at Turning Pointe produces self confident and educated dancers, by focusing on their individual development.

West 14th | Steakhouse & Ocean Beach Club | Dubai, UAE

West 14th | Steakhouse & Ocean Beach Club | Dubai, UAE

West 14th suggests that it stands for everything ‘New York Prime’. And, it does a very good job at living up to this vision. A ranch in Nebraska provides the US Black Angus beef that is cut-to-order, by Mr West, the resident butcher at West 14th the New York Grill and Bar at the Oceana Beach Club on The Palm Jumeirah.

Indeed, the contemporary, open-plan loft-inspired layout of the restaurant means that Mr West struts his stuff in full view of diners, up to 140 when the house is full. A specially-designed rack holds his tools in place, many of which look decidedly like weapons. However, having seen Mr West at work, his approach is more artist than warlord.

His brigade is sizeable both front-and back-of-house. Kitchen-side the atmosphere is everything a good American movie depicts. It is bustling, sizzling, steamy, interactive, passionate, always professional. With the collective energy of a tribe of New York buskers focussed on top-performance whatever the weather, the hierarchy of chefs chop, steam and grill away in a salsa-like rhythm, somehow never missing a beat between them.

At its core, West 14th is a steak house. But, fish-a-plenty and fresh from market also waits for a grilling, as does free-range chicken, and other choices depending on the day of the week. And, if you prefer to think of cows left to graze in one of the nine Nebraskan pastures, the West 14th menu extends way beyond meat-based grills. In testament to West 14th’s New Yorker embrace of neighbourhood, every palate is a friend at West 14th. Vegetables – often home grown in Dubai, are treated to a wondrous array of preparation styles.

The restaurant is vast, oozing a feeling of space without loosing any of the inviting club-like atmosphere set to become as ingrained as the West 14th ‘stamp’ that is ‘burnt’ into much of the collateral, from wooden chopping boards, through to the striking crockery and tasteful uniforms.
