The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) is one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organizations in the world. Established in 1920, to improve standards and re-invigorate dance training initially within the UK, the Academy helps and encourages its teachers to perfect their teaching skills and pass on this knowledge to their students.
There are currently over 1,000 students in full-time or part-time teacher training programs with the Academy and each year, the examination syllabus is taught to more than a quarter of a million students worldwide
The RAD offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments designed to encourage, motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities, outlining a progressive structure for learning and achievement.
Students may start with Dance to Your Own Tune (the curriculum for students from 2½ to 5 years), move up through the first Graded levels (Pre-Primary in Dance and Primary in Dance), and then into eight further Graded levels or six Vocational Graded levels. Students may move from the Graded pathway to the Vocational Graded pathway at an appropriate moment, they may study both pathways simultaneously.
