RAD dance courses announced

Published 25 February 2013

If you have a budding ballerina at home dreaming of a life spent pirouetting on stage, the Royal Academy of Dance has announced new workshops for young dancers of all abilities and ages taking place this spring.

Based in London, the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) is one of the world’s most influential dance education and training organisations, and boasts world famous dancer Darcey Bussell as its President.

The season of spring courses kicks off on 10 March with The Sleeping Beauty Repertoire Workshop, which offers students aged 10 years and older (studying at RAD Grade 4 ballet or the equivalent) and students aged 12 years and older (studying at RAD Intermediate Foundation or the equivalent) the chance to develop their performance skills through the study and rehearsal of a scene from the hugely popular ballet, culminating in a presentation for parents and guardians.

On 13 April, RAD will host the Boys Day of Dance, a fun and creative day for male students aged seven to 16-years-old, which offers the chance to experience up to four different dance styles in classes led by dynamic male teachers. A similarly inspiring eclectic Day of Dance will be held for girls and boys of the same age group on 19 May.

For young performers finessing their pointe skills, 21 April will see two classes to build on students’ varying experience. For dancers studying Intermediate Foundation, a two hour class will focus on steps, movements and strengthening exercise for basic pointe work, while Advanced Foundation students can attend a class to learn how best to prepare and maintain their pointe shows and explore advanced techniques with pointe work.

To book any of the activities above or find out more information on the experience needed for particular workshops, visit www.rad.org.uk. RAD’s website also contains information about the organisation’s hugely popular annual Summer Schools with applications now open for 2013’s line-up of courses.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
