If you see the initials RTS (Registered Teacher Status) after a teacher’s name and the Academy’s collective mark, this should mean that the teacher
- is a current member of the Royal Academy of Dance
- holds a recognized dance teaching qualification
- is in practice as a dance teacher either as an owner, employer or employee of a dance school
- is recognized as a centre for holding examinations offered by the Examinations Board, Royal Academy of Dance
While ballet is fun, it is also physically demanding and great care should be taken to choose professional, qualified teachers.
