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.
For the first time we are unveiling 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.
More centenary news coming soon…
RAD Centenary Dance Teacher Awards
We are delighted to announce the RAD Centenary Dance Teacher Awards. These provide an opportunity in the RAD’s centenary year to recognise RAD registered teachers from across the world through nomination of achievement and contribution to dance teaching in one or more of the following categories:
- Early Career Dance Teacher Award
- Community Engagement Dance Teacher Award
- Outstanding Mentor Teacher Award
- RAD Advocacy Dance Teacher Award
Further information will be available from January 2020, when nominations open.
Dance Gazette guest editors
Throughout 2020, three guest editors will take the helm of Dance Gazette, and will be invited to present the RAD and its work through the lens of another industry, providing an alternative perspective. We also hope that this will widen the reach and readership of the magazine, enabling us to forge new and lasting partnerships and collaborations. We’ll be revealing our exciting line-up of guest editors nearer the time.
100th birthday gala dinner
In what promises to be a grand affair, we are also in the planning stages for a special gala dinner. The evening will both celebrate 100 years of the RAD and act as a memorable fundraiser for future projects. Date and details will be confirmed in due course.
