Who are the UK Representatives?


Regional Representatives are ISTD members who support fellow ISTD members in their area by:

  • Being an ambassador for the Society, welcoming dance teachers into membership, and supporting you through your career
  • Communicating key updates, news, and campaigns to local members, and the regional community
  • Providing a local point of contact for ISTD members and creating a sense of community, in the local area
  • Helping ISTD to run CPD courses each year, based on the needs and interests of local members, in conjunction with the Education and Training Department.
