The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) is one of the world’s most well known and influential dance education and training organisations. It was founded in 1920 to re-invigorate dance teaching within the UK and today the RAD has a presence in 85 countries, with 36 offices and about 14,000 members worldwide. From Pri-Primary to Solo Seal each examination expands the knowledge of the dancer and develops an artist.
RAD candidates who have achieved a pass or higher in Grades 6, 7, 8, Intermediate and Advanced Foundation, can use their RAD exam result towards their points tariff when applying to university or higher education in the UK.
Sarah Mortimer is a registered teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance and therefore can enter students for all RAD examinations and class awards.
The RAD’s patron is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
