RAD Summer School

The Royal Academy of Dance holds regular summer schools in Wellington.

It is a great pleasure to present our 2024 Summer School programme. We have a range of dance styles on offer and our tutors are highly qualified and experienced. All our tutors have had distinguished professional careers either as dancers, teachers or both.  Summer Schools are a great opportunity to learn new things, make new friends and to learn from each other while having fun. We look forward to welcoming you to Wellington in January.
