The National Dance Teachers Association (NDTA) is the subject association for dance in schools, shaping national policy.

A membership organisation led by teachers and dance educators who work to ensure that all young people in the UK have equal access to a high quality dance education.

We actively work with a range of physical education and arts organisations, government departments and statutory bodies to promote high quality learning and teaching in dance and help to shape national policy related to dance in schools.
