Background and Purpose

The Dance Register has been created by the Dance Training & Accreditation Partnership (DTAP) to:

  • Provide a nationally recognised, free to search ‘one-stop shop’ for people looking for a suitably qualified and/or experienced dance teacher in their area
  • Compliment informal, word of mouth recommendations, by providing public access to a directory of dance teachers in the UK who have passed The Dance Register's Minimum Entry Requirements and who work across a range of dance styles (eg. Acrobatic, Expressive, Contemporary, Jazz)
  • Enable dance employers, parents, carers and participants to identify dance teachers who are committed to sound professional practice - The Dance Register provides quality assurance
  • Drive up standards of dance teaching and leadership, by ensuring teachers who join The Dance Register adhere to a Code of Professional Conduct  and are committed to regular training and CPD
