The RAD Training department’s programme of activities runs across the UK, as well as internationally, engaging with local communities, RAD teaching members and dance schools– to widen participation and access to dance. If your child is a complete beginner or an experienced dancer, and whether he/she wants to dance for fun or is working towards a career in dance, we have something for everyone. All RAD Registered Teachers are CRB checked.
The RAD offers an internationally recognised portfolio of Examinations which is designed for students of all ages and levels of ability. Students as young as two and a half may start dancing with the Pre-School Dance Curriculum, with the opportunity to move through Graded levels or Vocational Graded levels.
In our commitment to higher education, we createdthe Faculty of Education in 1999, dedicated to meeting the needs of our current and future dance teachers by providing education programmes and qualifications.
Royal Academy of Dance Enterprises Ltd is authorised by Royal Academy of Dance to sell products and goods using the Academy's logo and brand name.
A programme of physical and cognitive exercises is designed by the therapy team according to each child’s very specific needs. These exercises are taught to the child’s parents and carers who carry out the programme in the comfort and familiarity of the family home; through which 80% of children make measurable improvements and some achieve a degree of independence far beyond their families’ expectations.

Focusing solely on these two world-class institutions, we specialise in helping students gain an edge over the competition, seriously improving their chances of success.
All our work is based on one simple principle - the analysis of success. We interview, in depth, hundreds of undergraduates to discover what lay behind their success, this together with the expertise of ex-admissions tutors, experienced professionals and our own consultants gives us a winning formula.We offer help at every stage of the admissions process.

MOVE combines therapy and education in a programme which helps children work towards goals that they really want to achieve, which can range from learning to hold their head up by themselves to learning the skills needed to play football with their friends using a pacer.

Visit our website or call us on 020 7407 5344 to find out more information, speak to a specialist or a parent of a child already on the programme or to visit a school using MOVE.
