Project Details:

The Royal Academy of Dance is proposing to relocate its headquarters to the ground floor of a new purpose-built residential development, due for completion in 2020.

The new building will offer state of the art facilities and double the size of the academy’s current location. The new building will offer improved accessibility, multiple studios, flexible performance space with moveable seating, studios, changing rooms, offices, café’s, library and archive.

RAD aims for the project to strengthen ties with the local community, and meet high demands for high quality dance education. There will also be more opportunity for the local community involvement in dance activities and performances at the new site.
