Moving Forward

Through an innovative model – involving the sale of our existing building to developers, Avanton, and the purchase of their nearby site – we have succeeded in securing the vast majority of the funding required from the sale of our current building and the purchase of our new building on a 999-year leasehold basis. This package has contributed £16 million towards the capital cost.

This means that RAD now needs to raise a total of just £3.5 million to realise our vision in full, keeping the fundraising target to an achievable minimum.

“The doors of our new home will be open to everyone. From our neighbourhood community in Wandsworth to our worldwide membership, our new headquarters will be a place to learn, perform, teach and inspire. In short, a home for dance.
Luke Rittner – CEO, Royal Academy of Dance
