YPAD's mission is to benefit the dance industry by providing education on various best practices for the health and safety of dancers. YPAD has established certain policies and procedures related to our Dance Professionals Code of Conduct for certified educators and organizations, which includes procedures for addressing concerns.
Please carefully consider your concern before submitting and be advised that it takes more than a mere disagreement with a YPAD certified educator or organization to justify a review. Please be advised that any concern must include documents, evidence, and/or other information to support your claim.
This page includes a link to share anonymous concerns about YPAD Certified educators or organizations. Under the current practice, concerns are reviewed internally. If deemed appropriate, YPAD will request a dialogue call with the person or organization that is the subject of the concern. Additional steps may be taken according to YPAD’s 5-tier relational accountability process.
Internal reviews are confidential, and as such, YPAD does not provide the complainant with any information regarding actions YPAD may or may not take in regards to the person or organization named in the concern.
