Dance Expertise will take you to new professional levels!

Taking an ISTD dance teacher qualification with Dance Expertise will be one of the best steps you can take. You will have a recognised benchmark for your pupils: a point of reference that will enable them to establish your level of quality. By continuing to invest in higher-level dance teaching qualifications you will increase loyalty in your school. Pupils will respect your knowledge and skill as a dance teacher, continuing there training with you as they know that you are able to coach them to higher levels of performance. 

Dance Expertise will help you to develop your business!

By adding a new genre to your dance school programme, you immediately widen the groups of people who are signing up to your classes, and by broadening the range of your classes you encourage even more people through your door. Imagine a Ballroom and Latin American social class for adults; the people there will have a great evening, enjoying good music in an easy learning atmosphere. The chances are they will also have children, who they will be bring to your Freestyle medal and grade dance classes. Or imagine a kids’ class for Street dancing. There will be more than one mum watching who is thinking, ‘I’d love to try that’. An evening class that offers a fusion of Freestyle and Street styles will increase your pupil base further.

Dance Expertise will keep you up to date!

Continuing professional development (CPD) is one of the cornerstones of any profession. In the dance-teaching sector, syllabi are continually being updated, and we are there to keep your training current and informed.
