StudioRepublik, the newest member of the Republik family, is now open. This impressive 65,000 sq ft facility on Sheikh Zayed Road plays home to Dubai’s latest and most exciting community, a sanctuary where people of all ages and abilities come to boost their health, evolve, and express themselves.
Harnessing the most exceptional talent and technology from across the world, StudioRepublik enriches lives across three platforms: The Lab (Integrated Wellness), The Stage (Performing Arts) and The Arena (Group Exercise).
The Lab is uniquely equipped to provide ‘Integrated Wellness’ services, using advanced technology and outstanding talent to obtain tangible results. The team is made up of the best in the field across diet, rehab/prehab, personal training, and massage therapy, all working together to offer a 360-degree approach to wellness.
Kon gurate (K8), which embodies this approach, is an interactive tool designed by the experts at FitRepublik, to help members understand and manage their bodies better than ever. Taking into account individual goals and lifestyle factors, K8 uses rigorous methods to assess and review body composition and blood analysis, as well as movement, power, and endurance, and then creates a personalised training programme, with real-time progress updates available in one simple app.
The Stage aims to liberate creativity in the Performing Arts fields of Music, Drama, and Dance. With world-class artisans and industry leaders making up The Stage’s team, StudioRepublik’s community thrives in a fresh educational system that meets industry-standard goals with a brand-new approach that champions expression, artistry, and a passion for learning. An exciting addition to the local music scene, StudioRepublik will offer Dubai’s first community recording studio space to grow the talent of tomorrow. It will also re-ignite the passion of the later-in-life musicians who have had work and life come between their love of music.
The dance studio will offer high-calibre dance instruction to tots, juniors, teens, and adults of all levels, from absolute beginner to advanced in all major dance disciplines, led by acclaimed performing arts professionals for recreational or accelerated training.
The Arena is a brave new world of Group Exercise, where people come together in an environment of expertly produced visuals, music, and lighting. Senses are stimulated, moods altered, and maximum physical attainment achieved. Classes cater to all fitness levels and interests, including Bootcamp, Aerial, Cycling and GX, Mind and Body classes (Pilates, Yoga and Meditation), as well as an extensively equipped gym.
Aimed at the Business World
StudioRepublik is a museum of animated and diverse studios. Consequently, businesses that want to achieve a work-life balance, blending their employees’ professional lives with an array of wellness services and performing arts opportunities, are increasingly signing up to this innovative and fun destination.
As Ali El-Amine, Managing Director of StudioRepublik, explains: “I think corporations are looking more and more at work-life balance. Think of it this way, say we have an organisation looking to consolidate, improve performance or enhance teamwork, we provide a range of offerings, from bringing organisations in and putting them through screenings and blood work to ensure they are physically well. and at the same time, ensuring their people and communication skills are tended to as well; this is where the performing arts come in. We have them curate dramas and simulate scenarios that relate or mirror how they would operate at work.”
