AOB Client Urban Strides Moves with the Royal Academy of Dance

In 2018, AOB completed a collaboration agreement for client, Urban Strides (specialists in street dance education and entertainment) with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), which provides dance training, dance teacher education, and dance assessment services to students and teachers, as one of the world leaders in the field.

The two bodies have created a suite of examinations in street dance styles and have jointly developed a syllabus of Urban Strides Examinations. Following the completion of a successful trial period, these examinations will now be offered, administered and delivered by RAD to selected teachers certified to enter their candidates for the examinations. Under these arrangements, RAD will endorse and validate the Urban Strides Examinations, thereby enabling them to be awarded as RAD qualifications.
