What is DTAP?

The Dance Training & Accreditation Partnership (DTAP) is a major dance industry-led initiative that brings together a consortium of leading national dance organisations in the UK, committed to building capacity and removing barriers to participation in dance. DTAP's core mission is to address issues of participation in dance across all ages and sections of society. The initiative aims to:

  • Enhance the quality of the leadership and facilitation of participatory dance
  • Build capacity in the dance industry to develop a dance workforce qualified and skilled to meet demand
  • Take forward work to develop regulation of dance teaching, leadership and facilitation beyond statutory education
  • Develop greater communication and collaboration across the dance industry on issues of quality, standards and good practice
