Royal Academy of Dance


The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) was founded in 1920 with a single purpose: to raise the standards of dance teaching in the United Kingdom (UK). 100 years later, excellence in dance teaching is still at the heart of everything they do.

Today, the RAD is a world-leading dance, education and training organisation, with dance teachers and students in 85 countries, enriching the world’s arts and cultural communities.

The RAD believes in the transformative power of dance to enhance our health and happiness for both children and adults.


RAD Mission

To inspire the world to dance.

RAD Examinations

  • Exams are an opportunity for students to perform in front of an examiner, and celebrate their progress.

  • They are a goal to work towards, alongside other dancing objectives.

  • They are a globally recognised qualification.

  • In the UK, some of our exams can be converted into Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) points.
