The Royal Academy of Dance offers a wide range of courses, classes and workshops for young people
As a world-renowned and respected dance education and training organisation we ensure that our day-to-day activities are carried out with due diligence and in accordance with appropriate legislation or, where none exists, by setting best practice.
The RAD's staff are a hugely committed team of experienced individuals. As a parent or guardian of a child or young person either interested in or already engaging with the wide range of events, activities and services that the RAD has to offer, we understand your need to feel safe in the knowledge that they are in safe hands and that we are the right people to guide them through their dance education and set them on the correct career path.

All RAD Registered Teachers are bound as a condition of their registration to adhere to the RAD's Code of Conduct and Code of Professional Practice. As best practice the Academy recommends that its teachers apply for an Enhanced Disclosure (or equivalent) with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), Disclosure Scotland and other equivalent international bodies.
If any student, parent or teacher wishes to make a complaint against a teacher registered with the Academy, please read our Customer Complaints Policy and Procedure document.
Ensure that your children are surfing safely
The RAD recommends that parents and guardians visit our children's website Radacadabra and participate in the interactive modules and activities with their children to ensure that their privacy is protected. The RAD asks all children under the age of 16 to seek permission from their parents or guardians before visiting the site and providing any personal information about themselves.
