Register of teachers

Our mission is to inspire the world to dance, and to help achieve this, we’ve developed a global register of teachers as a great new resource to help you locate a professional dance teacher.

You can search our register to find out whether a dance teacher is registered with us. Simply search by their name or by country to see a list of all registered teachers in that area. If you are looking for a dance class, our enhanced listings allow you to filter by location, so you can narrow your search to find dance schools near you.

Only dance teachers who meet our professional standards and training requirements are RAD registered. Find out more:

The register updates every 12 hours in the morning and evening.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, please read our Frequently Asked Questions or contact us.

If you are looking for an over-50s class, visit our Silver Swans map.

How to use the register

The register is quick and easy to reference, with two types of listing: standard, containing name and country, and enhanced, providing dance school(s) information. Teachers with a standard listing can only be located by searching with the ‘Country’ and ‘Teacher or School’ fields. For Teachers with an enhanced listing, you will also be able to filter by ‘Location’.
