Name a seat

For over 100 years, the name of the Royal Academy of Dance has been synonymous with excellence in dance and dance teaching. The move to our new headquarters provides a unique opportunity for you to contribute to our history and to become part of the fabric of the new building. You can name a seat for yourself, your family, or a friend, perhaps even your dance school or to recognise an inspirational teacher, in our new home of dance.

What will I receive?

From £3,000, you can secure a seat in our new state of the art Aud Jebsen Studio Theatre where we will showcase the talent of the next generation of dancers and choreographers.

  • Seats are available at £3,000 or £5,000 depending on location.
  • The name plaques will offer up to 45 characters over three lines (measuring (w)100 x (h)38mm, size 24pt type) and will be in place for 20 years – after which we will offer you the chance to renew.
  • Seats will be sold on a first come, first served basis, with just 193 places available.

By naming a seat, you are supporting our wider work to bring the transformational power of dance to more people around the world. Register your interest below and read more about our work.
