Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET)


This is the national standards body of the professional dance industry. It accredits programmes of training in vocational dance schools and holds the Register of Dance Awarding Bodies - the directory of teaching societies whose syllabuses have been inspected and approved by the Council. It has recently introduced a procedure for recognising pre-vocational schools and has strengthened the number of board places. Equity is on the CDET Council and Equity members are involved in the accreditation processes as these involve dance professionals. www.cdet.org.uk


Dance Awarding Bodies and Dance Teaching Societies


Dance Awarding Bodies and Dance Teaching Societies are examining institutions offering graded and vocational graded qualifications in dance and musical-theatre.


Dance teachers who hold a teaching qualification from an awarding body or teaching society may enter students for the examinations of that body.


The Council has two categories of membership for awarding bodies - Registered Dance Awarding Bodies - four bodies registered (accredited) by the Council - the British Ballet Organisation, the British Theatre Dance Association, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing and the Royal Academy of Dance. Qualifications from these bodies are also accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and have been admitted to the National Qualifications Framework.


Corporate Member Teaching Societies - ten bodies currently moving towards Council registration - Association of American Dancing, British Association of Teachers of Dancing, International Dance Teachers Association, National Association of Teachers of Dancing, Professional Teachers of Dancing, Russian Ballet Society, Scottish Dance Teachers Alliance, Spanish Dance Society, United Kingdom Alliance of Professional Teachers of Dancing and Kindred Arts and United Teachers of Dance.


Full contact details of dance teachers who are members of a registered Awarding Body may be found in The UK Directory of Registered Dance Teachers; teachers who are members of a Corporate Member Teaching Society may be found in the UK Database of Dance Teachers, together these directories make up the most comprehensive listing of dance teachers in the country. The directories are the primary reference for students, parents, carers, primary and secondary schools looking for locally based, qualified dance teachers. Awarding bodies may also have a directory of their own teachers who do not subscribe to the CDET directory.


For further information, please see the BTDA web site.

The examination schedules for 12th, 13th and 19th of June are here.
