@drdance, I know of the article you speak of and the situation that led to it.
Setting up of a governing body that enforces best practice and protection standards is the best way to go.
Make the body double-tier - either a school can be approved (regular inspections) or individual teachers can get a qualification that needs to be updated every few years.
Raise awareness of membership with insurance companies who underwrite dance schools/teachers - so they offer much higher rates of insurance premiums for those who are not members (because they pose a greater risk to the insurer)
Then there needs to be political pressure (both public and private) to make people who hire out rooms and facilities insist on the membership.
(Addendum) Make it a requirement for schools to have membership before they can attend festivals and competitions.
