The Royal Academy of Dance offers a comprehensive choice of courses for dance teachers in major cities across the country. These programs allow a period of concentrated study on a regular basis for those who value their continuing professional development – ensuring up-to-date teaching skills and knowledge of the latest information, trends and teaching aids. They are also designed to inspire, encourage and give a fresh new approach, while providing practical skills to apply immediately in the studio. Non-syllabus courses are open to all teachers from any dance discipline. However, in order to attend syllabus courses, teachers must be fully registered with the RAD, or enrolled on the Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies.
