Regional Courses

Learning solutions for our UK based members…

‘Area services’ were first introduced by the ISTD in 1932 with the primary aim to ‘develop the work of the ISTD in various parts of the United Kingdom’ and to ‘bring members in closer touch with each other’.  Today, the ISTD continues to support a sustainable and functioning regional network of twenty training locations across the UK, each lead by its very own ISTD Representative.

ISTD syllabus classes held regionally are delivered by the same teaching faculties delivering classes in London, overseas and at major events.  By attending a course held regionally, you will receive the same high quality training you have come to expect from us in as efficient, convenient and cost-effective way as possible. 

Training opportunities offered at regional level include syllabus classes, master classes and non-syllabus workshops for teachers, non-syllabus classes for students and CPD/specialist training.

Upcoming Courses:

Regional Representatives are an important link between ISTD HQ and our dance teachers throughout the UK’s regions. Representatives provide advice, support and information on upcoming ISTD teachers’ courses in your local area.

Representatives are always happy to hear from local teachers, so please get in touch via the details provided below.

For a full list of upcoming courses, please see the ISTD events calendar.

Who to contact: 

Connect with your Regional Representative to ensure you're the first to know about upcoming courses coming to your area.
