The Royal Academy of Dance at 100
Whilst it is important to mark the Academy’s centenary it is clear that our priority must be to support our members through this difficult and challenging time and to secure the future of your membership organisation. Therefore, the Trustees have taken the decision to cancel all remaining centenary events and initiatives with some exceptions and to draw a line under the centenary in 2020, with a view to reprising a more modest centenary programme in 2021. As the actual birthday is 31 December 2020, 2021 is just as fitting a year to mark the occasion.
Exceptions to this are On Point: Royal Academy of Dance at 100, the free to enter V&A display which will run from Wednesday 2 December, and will be open to the public until 19 September 2021. As planned, we have announced the winners of the Dance Teacher Awards. Finally, having delivered two guest-edited Dance Gazette, we are pressing ahead with plans for the next issues; however, we have taken the decision to deliver them in a digital format only, with an option to produce a small print-run for souvenir purposes at the end of the year.
