  • Dance teachers who want to become certified and fill in the gaps of their knowledge

What Is the Program

Our comprehensive Teacher Training program, based on the Internationally-recognized Mister Dancing® American/International-Style Syllabus, incorporates the 3 essential aspects of teaching dance.

1. Syllabus Training

  • Comprehensive knowledge of all figure patterns as both Leader and Follower

  • A precise, detailed and universal “language” for teaching

  • Musicality, history and technical aspects for each dance

  • Posture, frame, footwork, movement, timing

  • Regular homework assignments and in-class presentations

  • Development of teaching and presentation skills

  • Exams (dance & theory) and written tests

  • Professional Mister Dancing® Certification (additional fees apply)

2. Body Mechanics

  • Create exceptional dance posture and poise

  • Learn specific, anatomical actions to produce beautiful dancing

  • Acquire the knowledge and tools to help your students improve their posture, arm styling, foot action, balance and expression  

3. Interpersonal Skills

  • Customer-focused, principle-based and high-integrity system

  • Learn how to create long-term relationships so that “sales” happen naturally

  • Tools to create constant success in all relationships


These Courses cover all of the material necessary for taking a Professional Certification exam. Completion of  certification of Associate Smooth, Rhythm, Standard, Latin, Social Club Style qualifies you to be listed as a “Certified Dance Teacher”. 

For those who are interested, Professional Certification will be available during or after the Course.  Private lessons will be available to those who need help with the coursework, want to explore other dances and/or prepare for certification. These lessons can also be shared with another trainee for additional savings.


This Course is focused on Teacher Training, wherein you will learn both the Leader and Follower roles in great detail as if preparing for Professional Certification. Dance experience is not required but the Course will be far more effective if you have experience with all the figures in at least one role.

Upon registration we will provide a variety of study assignments that we ask you to complete prior to the first day of class.
