Here’s what trainees and graduates are saying about our dance teacher training program:
The program has made a real and positive impact in my life.
“Somewhere in mid-life, I began to think that maybe it wasn’t too late to follow my dreams. At the ballet studio where I teach I saw an ad for Ballroom Dance Teacher’s College. A light bulb went off.
I liked that BDTC trained me to teach the DVIDA syllabi in 17 different ballroom dances. This has been a solid curriculum that allows me to offer students a good foundation in American style ballroom dances.
Now I teach a weekly group class in Argentine Tango at Just Dance Ballroom in Oakland, and I have regular private lesson students.
I am deeply grateful to BDTC for facilitating these opportunities! The program has made a real and positive impact in my life.”

Not only was the program high caliber, the classes were so supportive and friendly!
Not only was the program and curriculum high caliber, but also the teachers’ presentation of classes was done in such a supportive and friendly manner, while still maintaining professionalism.
Now that I graduated, I’m back teaching at two local Community Centers. I’m also turning the sunroom in my house into a dance studio, and will teach private lessons there. I’m so excited!

BDTC Teacher Training gave me all the skills I needed to be a successful dance teacher.
I always wanted a career in dance, but never thought it would be viable.
After working as an accountant in New York, I came across the BDTC website and training program. A few months later, I was on a plane to California. Now, almost 2 years later, I’m a staff teacher at a San Francisco studio and am loving it!
Going through the BDTC teacher training was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It was extremely comprehensive, and gave me all the skills I needed to be a successful dance teacher.
If you have ever thought about becoming a dance teacher, know this: it IS possible and the BDTC teacher training program is the best path to achieving that goal.
