Club Dance

Formed in 1999, the Club Dance Faculty is the most recent addition to the ISTD faculty family.

The umbrella term ‘Club dance’ encompasses dance styles which have origins in Social Dance. They are dances which have often been developed alongside a particular musical styles and are mainly seen in social settings, danced in pairs. Club or Social dance is constantly evolving, truly improvised dances, although each style has its own unique technique.

The new syllabus will now be compulsory in amateur medal test examinations as from the 1st September 2015. Therefore the "old" syllabus written by Richard Marcel will be acceptable until then. 

Members are also reminded that some of the new LA, Cuban and New York Salsa syllabus has already been presented at London and Worthing over the past five years. This work will also be acceptable.
