How To Join
The British Association of Teachers of Dancing was the first professional dance teacher’s association to be established in the year 1892. From this early beginning we have now grown to cover the whole of the UK and have members on five continents. The Association organises refresher courses, festivals, seminars, championship, instructional sessions and annual conferences. Professional and amateur examinations are available in Tap, Jazz, Modern Dance, Stage, Ballet, Acre-Gymnastics, Highland, Scottish National, Dance Exercise, Majorette, Disco, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Latin American, Modern Ballroom, Classical, European National and Country Western Line Dancing.
The British Association of Teachers of Dancing is represented on the British Dance Council, The Stage Dance Council International, The Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing, The Central Council of Physical Recreation and is a Corporate Member of The Council for Dance Education and Training.
Entry to this Association is by Examination only, and we would be pleased to give you a contact name of one of our members who may be able to guide you through our syllabus, should you require private tuition. However, should you be a current paid up member of a recognised professional dance Association in Britain or Overseas, then you could be able to enter your pupils for our examinations without being a member of the B.A.T.D.
