Our primere certification offering is referred to as the Accelerated Instructor Certification Program (AICP) which is a two day training program of 12 hours that awards participants a Level 1 certification designation. We also now offer a one day training session that awards attendees a Level 2 certification. Both training sessions require the participants to successfully pass an examination. The Level 3 Master Instructor designation program is under development and will include 18 hours of instruction planned for 2017.

The AICP includes professional training for dance instructors in the field of business development, legal aspects of dance instruction, physical therapy - injury prevention, teaching techniques, dance appreciation and music theory. All course participants are also required to have and maintain certification in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).

We offer a diverse range of instructor training to meet the cultural, entertainment and recreational interests of our customers across the US. Whether you are looking to meet new dance instructors and just get away from your daily instruction duties, participation in the AICP sponsored by The Consortium, International Consortium of Line Dance Instructors, can help.

Shed the stress and worry of everyday life by hosting dance classes and social dance events. Come attend our certification sessions and enjoy a fantastic time of learning with other dance instructors.
