We are very proud to announce that three RAD Awards will be presented to Australian members for their outstanding contributions and service to the RAD and dance in Australia.

Celebrated RAD Registered Teacher Prudence Bowen will be awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Dance (FRAD) posthumously at an event early next year. Queensland-based RAD Registered Teacher and respected member of the dance community Valerie Bayley will also be awarded a FRAD. Finally, RAD Registered Teacher and recently retired Regional Manager for Victoria and Tasmania, Jane Hollier will be awarded a President’s Award for her remarkable service to dance and the RAD in both regions.

Of these prestigious awards, National Director Rebecca Taylor said:

“These awards are a mark of the respect and appreciation the RAD has for its longest serving and distinguished members. They demonstrate the enormous pride we have in the talent and dedication that is at the very heart of our membership, which benefits not only the Academy but our students and the wider dance community. It gives me great pleasure to announce these very well-deserved awards for Prudence, Valerie and Jane.”

Further information on the presentation events for these awards will be announced shortly.
