Qualify as a dance teacher to become an IDTA member

The IDTA, through its member teachers, can offer training for IDTA professional dance teaching qualifications in a wide range of dance genres. You can train at your own pace with a dance teacher near you and enter for your examination when you are ready. All syllabi, technique books, set music CDs and DVDs are available from our shop.

Do you have a dance qualification, a degree or diploma?

If you hold a dance qualification, a dance degree or diploma or an Anatomy & Physiology qualification, you may be exempt from some of the prerequisites for the IDTA professional teaching qualifications. Each case is reviewed individually. You will need to contact Head Office, providing a copy of your qualifications for review.

Already a qualified dance teacher?

The IDTA will consider applications from dance teachers who are qualified with one of the private sector dance teaching awarding organisations. Each application is considered individually. If you would like to join the IDTA, please complete the form below. You will be required to provide copies of your current qualifications. You are also required to provide two professional references who can confirm your qualifications and experience level. When your application has been accepted we will write to you and advise you of the one off entrance fee and annual subscription payable. For details of the current entrance fee and annual subscription payable please contact IDTA Head Office.
