About the Royal Academy of Dance
The RAD started life in 1920 as the Association of Teachers of Operatic Dancing in Great Britain.
It was born out of a meeting of leading dance professionals arranged by Philip Richardson, former editor of the Dancing Times. With Adeline Genée chosen from among her peers as its first President, the Association launched its first syllabus in the same year and held its first exams in 1921.
