Programmes of study
As part of its dynamic expansion, the RAD has introduced new programmes which reflect a commitment to a broader concept of dance and dance education and meet the needs of a changing profession.
After a decade of delivering high-quality dance teacher education, the RAD has launched its first Masters programme: the Master of Teaching (Dance) validated by the University of Surrey and accredited by the Teacher Development Agency for Schools. The M Teach (Dance) is comparable with other M level qualifications but is distinguished by an emphasis on work-based reseach which impacts on the learning environment.
The BA (Hons) Dance Education and the Diploma in Dance Teaching Studies are designed to reflect the diversity of dance today and the range of contexts in which dance teachers can now work. Our Postgraduate Certificate in Education: Dance Teaching provides students with the qualification they need to teach dance in schools and colleges for the 14-19 age range. We are currently the only London based provider of this qualification.
At the same time, the Academy continues to value its heritage and offers a number of programmes and qualifications which focus on ballet. These include the BA (Hons) Ballet Education (validated by the University of Surrey), the Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies and the Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Dance (both awarded by the RAD). The Professional Dancer’s Teaching Diploma and exciting new Professional Dancers' Postgraduate Teaching Certificate (Berlin) both provide a career change opportunity for dancers coming to the end of their performing careers, programmes in which ballet is central.
