ISTD Mission Statement

The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) is the world’s Leading dance examination board. Formed in 1904 it is today a registered educational charity and is the only organisation that covers the full spectrum of dance examinations on a truly global scale.

The ISTD’s chief objective is “to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms”. To achieve this, the ISTD works in four main ways; to promote knowledge of dance, to maintain and improve teaching standards, to qualify, by examination, teachers of dancing in the ISTD’s specialist techniques taught by our 10,000 members in schools of dancing throughout the world and to provide, through its syllabi, techniques upon which to train dancers for the profession.”
