The Royal Academy of Dance offers a wide range of courses, classes and workshops for young people
The Philip Richardson library supports the Academy’s promotion of dance by providing a high quality information service internationally. It welcomes visitors and dance researchers to look into its comprehensive reference resources - journals, magazines, photos, videos, Benesh Movement Notation scores, CDs, DVDs - and encourages everyone to enjoy the ballet memorabilia it hosts and displays in the Academy’s premises for the benefit of present and future generations.
