How is The International Dance Studio recognized?
We have a long history in providing quality dance instruction to Canberra and in our 4 year history we have successfully passed over 400 medal candidates under the Imperial Society of the Teachers of Dance (I.S.T.D), London U.K, syllabus.
This is an internationally recognized society that founded the principles of Ballroom and Latin dancing. We are accredited under DanceSport Australia and conduct examinations under the Federal Association of the Teacher of Dance in Australia (F.A.T.D).
