We recognise the significant impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on our global dancing community. In response to this, and where possible, we have moved our benefits and services online, lessening our environmental impact and reducing costs. We are passing these cost savings on to you by making a significant reduction to membership fees this year.

We are committed to providing you with timely support and guidance to help you navigate through the year ahead.

We offer four types of membership, RAD Member, RAD Member Plus, Registered Teacher and Student Membership.  Take our quiz to see which membership is best suited to you.

Join us today – keep connected through your passion for dance.

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.
