Dance with us

At the Royal Academy of Dance we believe that every body can dance, so we have created opportunities to dance with us at any age and stage in your life.

A new survey conducted on behalf of the RAD by YouGov revealed that 89% of adults in the UK were not aware that there is currently no legal requirement for dance teachers to have a relevant dance teaching qualification in order to lead a class or dance school. This is also true in New Zealand. We want to reinforce the importance of learning with a qualified dance teacher.   Only dance teachers who meet our professional standards and training requirements are registered with us

We can help you to discover qualified dance teachers in your local area and classes that cater for children and adults of all ages.

Take a look below at how you can dance with us.
