Around the country, RAD Australia is supported by an army of volunteers and individual State based Regional Advisory Panels. This committed group of people helps us to realise our Student Activities programme in the regions and act as a conduit between the RAD Membership and our staff. Their input is integral to the success of our events and their generosity to the Academy and its community is a wonderful example of the loyalty and dedication that the Royal Academy of Dance engenders.
