Happy World Teachers’ Day to all our teaching Members

October 5 is World Teacher’s Day and this year the celebrations recognise that “Teachers are at the heart of education recovery” impacted by the global COVID-19 Pandemic. We know the incredible lengths our RAD Registered Teachers have gone to during the pandemic to continue to offer not only a dance education but a vital sense of community, achievement, and continuity for dancers across the globe.

We are particularly proud of our teachers here in Australia and so we’d like to take a moment to introduce you to just some of them. From teachers in training to those celebrating Life Membership this year, these talented educators have all had different pathways to teaching through the RAD, are based across Australia, and make up just a fraction of our more than 1100 Registered Teachers.

If you’d like to celebrate your dance teacher, Australia usually celebrates on the last Friday in October when schools return from Spring holidays. Take a moment to recognise your RAD Registered Teacher on Friday 29 October.

If you are looking for a RAD Registered Teacher to start your dance journey, head to our Find a Teacher Map to find your nearest today.
