Get Certified - Teacher and Student Certification Programs
"Get Certified" is based on Diane Jarmolow’s "Ballroom Dance Teacher's College" training curriculum that was designed to train students or teachers to get ready for amateur or professional certification. Diane is most noted as author of the Dance Vision International Dancer's Association (DVIDA) American Style Smooth & Rhythm Syllabus. The program focuses on how to understand, properly explain, execute patterns, technique, footwork, foot placement, lead or follow (or both), characteristics and expression of the dances, rhythmical body movement, and overall styling.
