T for Two: Customized Teacher Training and DVIDA Certification
T for Two (teacher training for two people) is a one-week customized residential program where you are paired with another dancer-trainee with compatible skills and goals. You choose the kind of training you wish to receive (general teacher training from the ground up or certification), when you’d like to come, and we put together a customized plan for you. All dance styles and levels are available (American and International styles, Bronze through Gold).
Training is held at the Ballroom Dance Teachers College private home studio in the San Francisco Bay Area. Housing and meals are included in the cost of tuition!
What You Will Learn
We will focus on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of each figure, in the dances you have chosen, by learning the individual elements (foot position, dance position, lead, turn, footwork, and timing). In addition, we will work on developing your ability to lead and follow with equal skill, as well as how to teach correct styling and technique. The training will also incorporate the theory principles required to pass a Certification exam, as well as teacher training (if that is your focus).
And for those pursuing DVIDA certification, we can arrange for you to take your exams while you are here.
