About the UKA
We are an awarding body validated by the Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre.
We assist dance teachers worldwide by providing their pupils with Achievement Awards for all ages & abilities, in all styles of Dance & Drama. We also provide Teaching Qualifications and are proud to help, encourage and support our members in all dance disciplines to establish and develop their business.
You can join through assessment in one of our professional exams or through the qualification recognition scheme, if youalready hold a teaching qualification with another recognised awarding body.
You can learn through the syllabus yourself or if you feel you need any help we can find you a teacher. Once you are ready to do the exam you need to send back the application form with the payment 2 weeks before you want to do the exam. We can then find an Examiner who can put you through the exam.
You can purchase any books from our shop.
If you are a member with another dance society, you can transfer over to us. You would just need to send back the application form with copies of your qualifications and membership card and pay the transfer fee.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. You can contact us here.
