Double win for South African dancer, Leroy Mokgatle Genée GOLD medallist and recipient of The Margot Fonteyn Audience Choice Award.

South Africa is abuzz with tremendous pride of the double victory of 15 year old, Leroy, from Johannesburg - the first South African to be awarded a Gold medal and voted as the audience's favourite dancer at the RAD's flagship event, the Genée International Ballet Competition.

Of the twelve finalists, one quarter were South Africans.  Megan Gerber (dancer 10) and Robert van den Aardweg (dancer 8) did us justly proud by performing superbly.


Focus on Exams digital publication

The new exams delivery model is now in place and we hope that teachers are enjoying more flexibility about when and where to enter candidates for exams.

Changing times

Richard Thom, Director of Finance, and Kerry Rubie, RAD Chairman, step down after 27 and 14 years respectively with the Academy.

Courses for teachers

We offer a range of CPD activities for dance teachers and dance professionals - both Onsite (face to face) and Online.
