Please give yourself at least 2 weeks to study our manuals to get familiar and go through our training videos learning our Standards, as they're all part of your exams on the cert day. And if you have no dance experience or very little of, please be sure to start taking dance classes at your own time prior the Workshop to help yourself to be up to speed in order to pass the exam.
If you succeed in your exams, your certificate and a letter of approval will be mailed out to you. You will be able to start teaching at any facility you desire and you'll have our community and media support to help you succeed in launching your entrepreneurship in the Dance Fitness industry. If you do not pass the exams, you'll be entitled to a re-test in our next round of workshop review, which usually happens in a matter of months and it would give you plenty of time to study and improve on your failings.

| Workshop Review
On the Workshop Certification Review and Exam day, workshop Review is time slot where the trainers go through your manual with you on bullet points to illustrate the importance on Teaching Techniques, Etiquettes, Fitness Theory and many important factors on what you have already studied prior the Workshop day. And this includes live demos on what the examples stand for and how to apply the theories, and it also allows you to ask questions on points needs more illustration and explanations. This also includes our Standards Review, meaning all the dances you'll learn from the training videos will now be taught live to you to demonstrate the moves and show you how they're taught, que-ed and led as an instructor. This process will prepare you to do the same later on as you are evaluated in both of the individual and physical exam teaching the routines live to your group.
+ Instructor's Manual Review
This is where we spend one hour of the training day to go over everything in the manual in bullet points as well as elaborating more practical factors that you can use for teaching a class. Also, this is where we share our industry knowledge on how to better prepare yourself in the career of group fitness in terms of your knowledge and staying power for marketibility.
+ Practical Training
The 3 practical principles we evluate an instructor on her abilities to teach a successful class are :
1. Intensity Modifications :
- Low : Basic Movement
- Medium : Range of Motion
- High : Movement Dynamics.
Knowing how to create multiple level of difficulties based on one movement to satisfy the diversity of students' fitness levels in one class.
2. Layering Technique :
- From footwork to arm movements.
Knowing how to break down a movement in a non-stop follow along format to instruct a dance move that satisfies the objective of a cardiovascular workout as well as an easy to learn and digestible format for students of all levels.
3. Choreography Modifications :
- Creativitivity and Dynamics
Knowing how to creatively modifying the moves to cater to the different skill levels of students, from beginner to advanced students, from non-dancers to working dancers. The ability of knowing how to simplifying a move as well as making a move more complex as you're performing and instructing it in a follow along format is what makes an instructor successful knowing how to engage all levels of students both creatively and fitness wise to keep them coming back feeling motivated and encouraged.
+ Practial Demostrations
