Dance training in Italy and the Entertainment Code
In recent years AIDAF has strongly supported with the institutions the need, after 50 years of regulatory vacuum, for regulation of dance teaching in private schools.
The role of the dance teacher in Italy has so far never been recognized, and there is no path established by the State to become a teacher.
The solution indicated by AIDAF is to give life to the reform of the sector with the implementation of Law no. 175/2017, which finally provides for the regulation and professionalization of the figure of the dance teacher through the establishment of a title recognized by the State throughout the national territory, without which it will no longer be possible to teach dance in private schools.
Finally, after many discussions with the government, with which we are working closely for this purpose, we know that this historic result will be achieved by 2024.
