Studying in London
Our students benefit from a thriving London dance scene with many opportunities to see some of the leading dance companies in the world and to take part in the cultural diversity of dance in the UK.
The RAD sits on the bank of the River Thames in Battersea Square with bars and cafes on the doorstep and a short journey away from the lively activity of the city centre.
London has something to offer students of all ages, from venues which host a wide variety of international dance tours, to art galleries, open air concerts and the famous ‘West End’ home of the musical. There are thousands of shops, bars, restaurants and cinemas within the city, and many stunning sights.
