How is RAD Membership supporting you through Covid-19?

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.
