CDTA Membership Benefits

CDTA Alberta Branch offers many teachers across Alberta the opportunity to have a time tested syllabus in more than one dance discipline - all for one membership fee!  Unlike other organizations that only offer training/certification in ballet, CDTA has many options for teachers to choose from.  Currently in CDTA Alberta there are syllabi and nationally recognized exams in ballet, tap, jazz, acro and modern dance.  We offer all members access to a network of teachers who live life as you do.  You can choose to share knowledge, ask questions or submit ideas to people who understand what studio life is like - welcome to your new tribe!
 

We Have Several Levels of Membership:

  • Patron: A friend of the Alberta Branch, who has made a contribution to the Association in the requisite amount, has no voting privileges and cannot advertise his/her patronage to the Association.

  • Pre-Associates (Affiliate): An Affiliate is a teacher-in-training, who must make arrangements to take the first professionally qualifying examination within two years of acceptance into the Branch. Any extension of this length of time depends on extenuating circumstances, of which the Executive must be made aware. A written application for the extension must be submitted to the Executive. An Affiliate cannot hold office, has no voting privileges, cannot advertise as a Member of a Branch, and must understand that this does not constitute professional status in the Branch.

  • Associate: Has successfully completed the Division Associate exam, has agreed to uphold the Branch Bylaws and Code of Ethics, has paid their annual membership fees. Associates have the right to vote and hold office as a "Member at Large" in the Alberta Branch. Is qualified to teach at the Junior Syllabus Level, must be 18 and over. Is able to enter students into exams at the Junior Syllabus level.

  • Licentiates (Member): Has successfully completed the Division Membership exam, has agreed to uphold the Branch Bylaws and Code of Ethics, has paid their annual membership fees. Members have the right to vote and hold office at the Executive level after two years in the Alberta Branch. Is qualified to teach at the Junior and Senior Syllabus Level, must be 21 and over. Is able to enter students into exams at the Junior and Senior Syllabus levels.

  • Life Member: Is given the recognition by the Branch Executive for having contributed to the Branch for 40 consecutive years as a professionally qualified member. This recognition waives payment of nominating Branch annual dues and honors the retention of voting privileges.

  • Honorary: Is one who has performed outstanding service to the Association, or, whose outstanding achievements have warranted the recognition. Approval by the National Board of Directors is required after nomination by the Branch Executive. If already a professionally qualified Member of the Association, the Member retains voting privileges, and annual dues are waived Nationally.
