Dance teaching

On 28 November, the National Dance Teachers Association (NDTA) will present its last annual conference at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Formed in 1988, the NDTA is the only national association that focuses solely on the teaching of dance in schools. A registered charity, it aims to support dance teachers across the curriculum, providing valuable resources, building networks and aiding the continuation of professional development.

Championing Dance in Schools: Celebrating the Past and Shaping the Future celebrates the NDTA’s achievements one last time, as next year the organisation reforms in partnership with the Association of Dance of the African Diaspora (ADAD), Dance UK, and Youth Dance EnglandThe conference will take advantage of Trinity Laban’s world-class facilities, offering delegates an exceptional opportunity to take part in a series of workshops, seminars, discussions and performances.

This year, the programme includes sessions with dance company Tavaziva, physical theatre artist Tim Casson, and the English Folk Dance and Song Society, as well as a chance to get up to date with dance at primary, secondary, GCSE and A Level.
