AVANTON : BATTERSEA
Avanton : Battersea will be the new home of the Royal Academy of Dance and a limited edition of cutting edge contemporary residences at Coda.
Royal Academy of Dance
Coda’s fluid, bold style is anchored by an organisation that’s built on expressive motion – the Royal Academy of Dance, in its new home at the base of the building. One of the world’s leading dance education and training organisations, RAD’s students and teachers perfect the art of dance, from upbeat jazz and expressive contemporary dance to classical ballet.
The Royal Academy of Dance was founded in 1920 to set standards for dance teaching. It soon gained its first royal patron, Queen Mary, and has retained its royal charter for over 90 years. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the RAD’s patron.
Since then, RAD has developed training programmes for dance students and teachers, with nearly a quarter of a million young dancers around the world being examined on the RAD’s classical ballet syllabi. The academy’s mission is to promote and enhance the understanding and practice of dance globally, which all starts from its new home at Avanton : Battersea.
The state-of-the-art space will include seven dance studios, a performance space, two cafés and a specialist dance library. RAD offers classes to dance enthusiasts and the local community, including ballet classes for all ages, jazz and street dance classes and more expressive forms, such as creative and contemporary dance.
