Student Scholarship Fund
The Performance Course is a two-week summer intensive, drawing students from all over the world to come together to work with a distinguished faculty of professional dancers and teachers. Over the two-week period, students participate in the creation of original pieces of choreography, culminating in an inspiring final performance. Contribute
College Scholarship Fund
Teaching dance is an art form in and of itself. The Royal Academy of Dance offers a broad range of certificate and degree programs for both new and established teachers. These unique and unparalleled programs provide the knowledge and experience required to teach in the dance world today. Due to the economic challenges our country now faces, many promising and dedicated teachers are unable to secure the loans needed to continue their education. With your help, the RAD USA will be able to increase the number of scholarships awarded each year. Contribute
The Genée Scholarship Fund
The Genée International Ballet Competition is the RAD's flagship annual event and is named after Dame Adeline Genée DBE, co-founder of the Association of Operatic Dancing, as the RAD was then known. In order to embrace the international spirit of the competition, The Genée is held in a different country each year. Because of the high cost of travel and accommodation involved, the RAD USA has created a grant fund to assist dancers and their families in covering these expenses. Your support will make this extraordinary experience possible for the most talented of our dancers, as well as to allow the United States to be represented in this elite competition. Contribute
