Dance Gazette is our highly-respected international dance magazine, produced as part of our mission to inspire the world to dance and with over 100 years of dance teaching and training knowledge and expertise.
After 91 years as the printed voice of the Royal Academy of Dance, it re-invents itself as a digital-only magazine. It still offers inspiring stories, exploring how the RAD impacts upon the world and how the world affects us all. We still work with imaginative writers, photographers and illustrators but we now offer more multimedia content, more ways to bring stories to life.
Published three times a year (February, June and October) it is a benefit of membership of the Royal Academy of Dance, available free of charge to our worldwide membership of teachers and students in 89 countries. Single issues can be purchased – order your copy now.
