DVIDA Training & Coaching
These Certifications are developed to push your experience and expertise in dancing, while teaching you how to see the individual elements involved in each pattern danced in various style’s of partner dancing.
There are four parts to each exam: Theory, Teaching Questions, Dancing a Routine, and Overall Presentation. Theory consists of various elements ranging from foot placement to summary. Teaching Questions range from history and characteristics of a dance to how would you teach pivots. Dancing a Routine allows the examiner to see you dance with a partner both as a Leader and as a Follower. Overall Presentation is how you present the information and yourself.
In your lessons, we work on breaking down theory, asking questions expected for the exam, dancing through routines, and suggestions in presenting information clearly. We also facilitate practice exams to help you further your preparation skills.
Lessons are 50 minutes in length.
