RDA Vision - Angelo Ruggieri
As a dance academy, we build beyond students’ technique in dance & musical theatre. The founder of RDA, Angelo Ruggieri, pioneers in producing novelty shows around the world, offering students the opportunity of real stage experiences. International show production is the DNA of the school and is designed so that our students grow in the art of performance in a way that no other school can offer...
We believe everyone is born with inner strength, confidence and aspiration to fulfil their dreams. Angelo, the founder of RDA, lives out this belief himself. Pursuing his passion for dancing despite resistance from family, he persisted in putting himself into a rigorous and top-standard ballet training environment and was later hand-picked by prestigious European dance companies to perform regularly on National stages across Europe. It goes without saying that excellence in dancing is in his blood.
Delivering an exceptional quality of dance & performing arts training: RDA knows that the best way to prepare talents for the world of dance and musical theatre, is to combine uncompromising technique with real stage experiences.
We teach and encourage students to persist and continuously push their own individual level of performing in a friendly, fun and humble environment. The academy commits itself to produce shows in London, Italy and China; providing students with opportunities to take part in international productions.
Regardless of age, gender and race, we invite and support people to dream and live out their passion for dancing and performing - either as a professional career or as a lifestyle choice. Perhaps the reality of life may overshadow or weigh down talent deep inside - but we strongly believe that this treasure will never disappear.
Come and let us help you live out your dreams. We believe in you, and the passion inside of you - do you?
We offer Dance Classes and Courses in an extensive range of styles and disciplines, across all levels of experience – so whether you are setting foot on the dance floor for the first time, already have years of experience, or only recently tried the dance floor: we have something for you.
“You can make stones dance”
“You make a part of me come out that I never thought I could have”
"I arrived at RDA with no technical dance or performance training, and I suffered from stage fright. The school has since encouraged me to experiment with many dance styles (from ballet to burlesque), to try out their IDP qualification (I’ve completed all levels), to perform - and even principal - in their shows. For me, RDA has unleashed a true love of dance and performance, given me increased self-assurance at work and more body confidence than I’ve ever had. I attribute all of this to Angelo Ruggieri: an exceptionally passionate, talented and dynamic teacher, who has enabled me to express myself differently and more fully, taught me how to risk as a performing artist, and overall brought so much joy into my life. The experience has been transformational… Thank you, RDA."
