About Us

Love, learn, teach dance


The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is one of the world’s leading dance examination boards. From Ballet to Ballroom, we have 12 dance faculties covering Theatre, Dancesport and Social Dance.

Since 1904 we have provided training for dance teachers and examiners, enabling teachers to enter their students for examinations, develop new techniques and spread the joy of dance.

As a registered educational charity and membership association, the ISTD’s mission is to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms, to promote knowledge of dance, to provide up-to-date techniques for our members, and to maintain and improve teaching standards. We support our members through updated teaching syllabi and techniques, plus a wide variety of courses, summer schools and congresses.

Whether you are planning to open a new studio, become a qualified dance teacher, enter candidates for examinations, or run an event in your region, we are here to support you to achieve your goals.
