In 1992 dance teachers from Mississippi, gathered in Jackson, Mississippi, to form a board for a nonprofit educational dance training association. The newly appointed board named the dance organizational association Dance Teachers United. Since DTU had no affiliated chapters, the member teachers felt the need to invite teachers from all over the South.

Ours is a member based organization that can benefit all teachers of the art of dance.
