Step into Dance, a Royal Academy of Dance programme in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation, "enables young people to develop their passion, skills and understanding of dance."

Working with schools across London and Essex, Step into Dance reaches around 3,000 students annually through weekly classes, workshops and performance opportunities.

Step Around Town is an annual celebration where school students from across London and Essex perform in their local areas. This year, participating boroughs included Wandsworth, Barnet, Croydon, Newham, Southwark and Bexley.

Alexander Campbell, Artistic Director of RAD, said, “the Step Around Town events are a brilliant opportunity for young dancers from across London and Essex to come together. These events are so inspiring, energetic and really epitomise the RAD's belief in the power of dance.”
