Dear Member,
First and foremost, we want to thank you for your continued support of CDTA. We’re so proud to have you as a valued member! Our organization truly wouldn’t be the same without you.
It has been an exciting and busy year for CDTA National. We were able to accomplish so many initiatives:
  1. We became a Truly National CDTA as of July 1, 2022 and developed National Bylaws, Policies and Handbooks.
  2. We held our first National AGM across the country.
  3. Our National Examining Committees and Examiners’ Panel were created.
  4. We held our annual Summer Syllabus Intensives via Zoom
  5. We developed the CDTA Education Centre
  6. We took part in Toronto Dance Expo as a truly National CDTA.
Now this fall, we are getting ready to elect our new Regional Teams!
We wanted to let you know that your CDTA National membership is expiring soon, but we hope you’ll join us again next year! We have many upcoming opportunities for you to explore. Renewing is as easy as ever with these options:
