What is the point of both ?-- Choice .

These soc. date back over 100yrs .
Looking back to those times, it would have been virtually impossible, for the average person, to have the facility to travel distances for information . As a result, competing bodies would have existed for those reasons alone , including, probably, politics .

And by the way , there are more than just 2 " bodies " .

The exam proceedure, and content, are virtually the same .
The ISTD, established its self , and are in competition ( in the states ) with several other organisations ( I was an examiner with one of those )

If you are refering to Amer. style as opposed to Intern. syle --- yes-- there are many differences in techn.

the techniques in each, are complimentary to the style .Both are valid in their own context .--

Remember-- all of the dances in the syllabii, are imports, and have changed , in some cases , radically from their original design .

The Latin division in particular, has strayed from its roots , primarily for acceptance on a social level .

IDTA and ISTD techn. are essentially the same. If you wish to have more info about each, I suggest you look up their websites .
