Become a Better Dancer:
The technical expertise will prepare you one step closer to preparing you for your certification exam and bring your dancing level to an entirely new level.
When you complete one of the DC Dance Teacher Training programs you will receive a certificate of completion from DC Dance Club. The certificate of completion is different from professional certification. This is a valuable accomplishment, and it will serve as a credential for your dance resume including being an asset to your career. The certificate you will receive when you pass your certification exam will able you to attract new students and earn more for your services.
What is a Professional Certification?
Professional certificates are granted to dancers who submit themselves to a standardized exam from a credited organization and who pass that exam satisfactorily. We base our curriculum on the DVIDA syllabus.
Become a Better Teacher:
The process of preparing for your certification exam will teach you dance concepts you may not have fully understood, you will improve both your verbal and presentation skills. You will learn the vocabulary for describing the technical elements of dance figures, you will improve your knowledge of proper alignments and ability to choreograph routines for students.
One Dance at A Time:
Advantage of certifying with DVIDA is that you can take your professional certification exams "one dance at a time". For example, the Bronze American Style Ballroom certification includes four dances; Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Viennese Waltz. With other organizations, you would need to study and prepare for all four dances in our exam. With DVIDA's exams you have the options of testing in each dance separately, one at a time. This makes the preparation much easier; you can learn the material more thoroughly. After successfully completing each dance exam, you receive a "Certification of completion" for that dance, and full certification when you have successfully tested in all of the dances at a particular level.
Attendance; This course is designed to develop dance teachers, therefore a lot of material will be covered at a fairly fast pace, missing too many classes is not advised, as you can easily fall behind. If you do miss a class you can generally arrange to work with one of the other teacher trainees to help you catch up.
You can also schedule a private lesson (for an additional private lesson fee) to make up any work you miss.
