There are numerous organisations and private dance schools in the country.

Generally, the organisations are based on ethnic background and the styles taught are primarily of the ethnic group. Some of them also emphasize modern dance techniques.

Private ballet and dance schools generally concentrate on teaching the RAD and ISTD syllabus while providing classes of various styles for children and adults. Teachers are registered with these international bodies and frequently attend courses to upgrade their skills and knowledge.

A few schools also specialize in open classes catering more to the professional dancer.

In tertiary institutions, dance is usually an elective program or part of a performance arts course.

The only institution providing a full-time Diploma in Performing Arts (Dance) is the Akademi Seni Kebangsaan (National Arts Academy). The duration of the course is 3 years and is fully accredited by the National Accreditation Board.
