RAD@Home

As the home for dance, the RAD is here to support you when you can’t leave yours. As such, we’ve created RAD@Home to provide a whole raft of content to help you make the most of dancing at home.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be adding online dance classes for all ages and abilities as well as fun and useful features such as exclusive Dance Gazette articles, interviews and more.

Latest updates

Silver Swans

Our series of FREE online ‘Silver Swans’ ballet exercise classes are designed to get the older generation moving to the music at home. From experienced dancers to those that don’t know their plié from their pointe, older learners of any ability are invited to try out free Silver Swans classes. Shared in manageable bitesize videos, viewers can work on these during the week before moving onto the next exercise.

The classes can also be viewed on our YouTube channel, Facebook page and IGTV.
