The Academy has superb facilities and resources which make it a centre of excellence for the study of dance.


STUDIOS AND PERFORMANCE SPACE


Students studying at the RAD benefit from seven fully equipped dance studios named after key figures in its history. The Fonteyn Centre offers two professional, company size, studios (Ashton and de Valois), whilst the Genée Studio transforms into a studio theatre for student and community dance performances.


PILATES STUDIO


The Pilates studio is run by Pilates Performance, offering a range of exercise and teacher training programmes designed to suit the individual. Academy students are eligible for special discounts.


THE PHILIP RICHARDSON LIBRARY


The Philip Richardson Library attracts dance scholars and researchers worldwide. The book collection comprises more than 5,000 titles covering all aspects of ballet and other dance genres, anthropology, biography, education, history, notation, medicine and psychology. The library is also home to a unique collection of 500 Benesh Movement Notation scores, a large collection of videos, DVDs and CDs and extensive runs of more than 30 international dance journals. The Library Archive comprises an enviable range of rare photographs and artefacts including programmes, playbills and costume designs.


INFORMATION LEARNING TECHNOLOGY SUITE AND COMPUTER SUITE


The Information Learning Technology Suite and Computer Suite are used to support student study and, in particular, to develop ICT skills in dance education and teaching. Both suites contain a wide range of hardware and software including Benesh Editor, Labanwriter and Lifeforms.


AUDIO-VISUAL RESOURCES


To enhance the development of teaching and self-evaluation skills on site students have access to digital video cameras and playback facilities to film and assess teaching. This may be used on site and, with prior arrangement, may be taken into schools/colleges to record work with different groups of students. Lecture rooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards, laptop computers and screens. The video collection housed in the Philip Richardson Library enables students to use a range of professional dance works for resource-based teaching.


STUDENT SUPPORT


All students studying on the Academy’s programmes are supported by teaching and administrative staff in the Faculty of Education. The Student Support Officer provides individual advice and additional support for students whether they are studying on site or from home.
