The Royal Academy of Dance at 100

The RAD has been inspiring the world to dance for almost a century, and on 31 December 2020 will officially turn 100.

To celebrate this landmark in our history, we are planning a year-long programme of events and initiatives throughout 2020, leading up to that moment and focused on sharing our past, our present and our future with our global dance community.

Here we unveil highlights of the exciting year ahead and the one message that we want you to take away is that we want everyone, young and old to get involved in the celebrations.
