Dance Proms at the Royal Albert Hall

In 2011 three of the world’s leading dance examination boards, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA), and the Royal Academy of DanceDance Proms (RAD) joined forces with the Royal Albert Hall to launch Dance Proms, to celebrate dance in all its forms.

Dance Proms begins as an online virtual Dance Festival, engaging with dance teachers and their students, aged between 5 and 21 years, from around world to create original dance pieces using any style of dance in their own schools or studios, and then video their pieces and upload them to our central and secure website.

In 2017, we were thrilled to have been selected by a respected panel of professionals to perform Aberfan:Child of Mine (choreographed by Sian Sandford) at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, for the last ever dance proms.


‘Every year I am amazed at the young dancers who wow us with their skill, creativity and extraordinary talent.’
