An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha: Teacher’s Attendance at Class

(Section 3.3 of Rules for Dancing Teachers and Adjudicators)

3.3.1 A Registered teacher must attend and teach his/her class on a regular basis.

3.3.2 Unregistered teachers/pupils may only teach in such classes in the presence of the registered teacher.

3.3.3 Dancers/pupils who teach independently, or in contravention of this decision, are not entitled to compete at registered competitions, which include Regional and National Oireachtasi, as well as Oireachtas Rince na Cruinne.

N.B. The following points should clarify the situation:

(A) There is no rule of An Coimisiun which permits a registered teacher to attend a class on a monthly basis and have someone else teach the class on his or her behalf between such intermittent attendances by the registered teacher.

(B) Only teachers who have sought and received permission to teach in areas where no other teacher exists are exempt from the above. Permission if granted is for the duration of one registration year only and must be reapplied for annually.


Any dispute arising out of or in connection with a member’s registration with and membership in the IDTANA shall be exclusively and definitively resolved through final and binding confidential arbitration. It is the intention of the IDTANA and its registered members that this agreement is designed to encompass all possible disputes, including any dispute, controversy, or claim (of any and every kind), arising out of membership in and registration with the IDTANA.

The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with the Commercial Rules of the AAA (as then in effect) (the “Rules”). One arbitrator shall conduct the arbitration, who will be appointed in accordance with the Rules.

Seat of Arbitration

Unless otherwise agreed by all parties to the arbitration, the seat of the arbitration shall be Chicago, Illinois.

Costs and Attorneys’ Fees

The arbitrator is authorized to award costs and attorneys’ fees and to allocate them among the parties to the arbitration. The costs of the arbitration proceedings, including attorneys’ fees, shall be borne in the manner determined by the arbitrator.


Any arbitration relating to a dispute, including but not limited to all documents exchanged during the arbitration, all briefs, memoranda and other pleadings submitted, any settlement and settlement discussions, any transcript of proceedings or correspondence prepared for the arbitration, shall be confidential and may not be disclosed by the parties to the arbitration except where required by law or necessary to enforce any arbitration award. This provision, however, will not prevent the parties from disclosing information to witnesses, consultants, or other third parties for the limited purpose of assisting with or participating in the arbitration.

Governing Law

Any dispute arising out of membership in and registration with the IDTANA, and any resulting arbitration, will be governed by the law of Illinois.
