We are pleased to welcome Rebecca Taylor as our new National Director Australia. Rebecca Taylor succeeds Bronwyn Watkins, the longest-serving National Director (29 years) of the RAD in Australia, which is the largest RAD national office outside London.

Rebecca joins the RAD following 12 years in a variety of roles at the Sydney Opera House and before that as a professional dancer. Her leadership qualities and strategic background have made her a key recruitment for the Academy as we prepare to celebrate 100 years globally in 2020.

RAD Chief Executive Luke Rittner said:

“Rebecca Taylor was an outstanding candidate for the post of National Director of the Royal Academy of Dance in Australia, and she takes on the leadership of the Academy at a key moment in our history as we approach our centenary in 2020. Rebecca has a passion for dance and brings with her a wealth of experience and expertise gained during a highly successful career, both as a professional dancer and in senior posts in arts administration. I know she will lead the Academy in Australia with distinction.”
