Empowering People Through Dance

RAD is an independent educational charity with no government funding. Every penny we make goes back into the work we do which includes our cultural engagement plans with our diverse communities. Sadly the loss of income from our day to day activity as a result of Covid 19 has caused a major funding gap of £1M in the UK alone and we need your help.
