Hear from Our Graduates

“The Teacher Training program has enhanced my life in various ways. As a dancer, it has opened me up to dance styles I wouldn’t have experienced. It has developed my technique and knowledge of technical dance. As a choreographer, it has inspired me to use new steps in the dances I create. It has helped me become a teacher who is more precise in how I explain steps and it has brought new cultures into my choreography. As a person, it has pushed me to learn difficult concepts and steps and it has kept me moving and flexible, making my everyday life that much more enjoyable because I get to dance more often.”


“When I started the program, I had very little experience in ballroom. I had dabbled; I took a few courses, just from a pure interest point of view. And when I started doing this course, I thought this would be a great way to become a really good dancer. I just wanted to learn the ins and outs of all these dances; maybe I’ll learn quickly and then I would be a good dancer. I didn’t think I would be teaching so quickly after graduating. After one semester, I had changed my mind and knew I wanted to do this full time. I have developed a real passion for this. It is a great new career for me. I owe a lot to this program and to the instructors here.”
