Our Program

The complete program runs for 16 months. It includes all twelve American Style dances and is divided into 4-month terms, building a solid foundation for three dances per term, consisting of technical knowledge, body awareness and the vocabulary to dance and describe them as both leader and follower.



We are proud to teach the internationally recognized DVIDA syllabus. Our students are required to participate in a Mid-Term and Final exam for each dance. Exams consist of a dance demonstration and a verbal, theoretical component. They are modeled after the professional exams conducted by the Canadian DanceSport Federation benefiting all of our students, with goal setting and structure, not only those interested in pursuing a career as an instructor.

Our program hours allow for students with established family and work commitments, to participate. This is the most time and cost effective way to achieve your ballroom dancing goals.

Graduate Testimonials

“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.”
