A memorable Members' Day 2024

This year's Members' Day, held on 21 April, was a huge success and we are delighted that so many people attended.

The day saw a variety of informative and inspiring workshops on topics including: musicality, contemporary dance with Rambert Grades, teaching Silver Swans, yoga and stress management, and Character dance.

Among the other highlights were:

  • a nostalgic look back at what an RAD exam from 1923 would have looked like,
  • an energetic Latin dance masterclass with Strictly star, Karen Hauer,
  • exploring dance and virtual reality with the Jasmin Vardimon Company,
  • insightful panel conversations and presentations on the power of language, injury prevention, and the RAD brand,
  • the RAD's 87th AGM,
  • the first-ever RAD Awards recognising the contributions of RAD teachers, including the presentation of the Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Dance, and
  • performances from SYNC (our Step Into Dance Company), English National Ballet School and Jordan James Bridge (Studio Wayne McGregor Dancer).

A big thank you to all our members, and our supporters, Diptyque, and exhibitors IDS, Little Ballerina, and Nadezha Lisak.

We'd also like to thank Gallagher, sponsors of the RAD Awards.

The date for next year's Members' Day will be announced shortly.
