What is the Royal Academy of Dance(RAD)?
The Verdi Academy of Dance offers professional dance training to the very highest standards in a caring environment. Each Student receives an exceptionally high level of individual instruction ensuring that their talents are developed to their maximum potential.
Students will learn various styles taught through character dances, commonly practiced in other countries such as Hungary, Poland, and Russia.
The system of learning and advancement offered through the Royal Academy of Dance, provides for yearly examinations, thereby enabling students to earn certificates and medals of accomplishment. National and International RAD examiners travel once a year to Las Cruces to grade and advance our applicants. Through these studies students may elect to continue studying and training in this artistic and classic art form.
