Established in 1920, the RAD is one of the world’s most influential dance education organisations. Our exams set standards in classical ballet and we are a global leader in Continuing Professional Development for dance.

The RAD is the professional membership organisation for dance teachers. We have over 8,000 teaching members that we support through providing syllabi, training, resources, and professional development. Our teachers enter more students for exams than any other dance organisation.

We also bring the benefits of dance into communities with the support of donors, corporate fundraising, trusts and foundations. These enable us to develop and deliver activities to a wide range of patrons, from children with Special Educational Needs to adults in residential homes, and to offer a range of student bursaries. Recent fundraising has enabled us to launch the Darcey Bussell Genée Bursary in order to widen access to our flagship ballet competition.
