Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) has partnered with award-winning beauty and wellbeing brand This Works to co-curate an eight-week series of free online dance classes from 1 July.

‘A Moving Summer’ will consist of dance classes supplemented by blogs and interviews from dance and wellbeing experts centered on taking care of your bodies, focusing on your minds and lifting your spirits during uncertain times.

The series will air on Wednesday, 1 July at 5pm on RAD and This Works Instagram and every week at the same time for 8 weeks.

A new class will be posted to Instagram by both @thisworks and @royalacademyofdance each Wednesday at 5pm, culminating in a final extended class on 19 August that will see the previous weeks’ skills come together and offer a chance to ask the dance teachers for their top tips. Additional expert content will supplement the classes, focusing on managing self-care and wellbeing.

This Works CEO Dr Anna Persaud said: “Recognising that this Summer there is so much we can’t control, we have been focusing on how we can ‘Rethink Summer’ focusing on simpler pleasures and taking care of our minds and bodies."

"We are delighted to be working with the RAD on this partnership and the opportunity it has given us to share with our audience the sense of ownership, freedom and empowerment we can feel when we reconnect with our bodies and express ourselves through movement.”
