WHO IS THE INSTRUTTER TRAINING FOR?
So, the course is for dance and fitness professionals who want to empower their community to feel fabulous just as they are, in the skin they’re in, regardless of shape or size.
The pre-requisite for the course is either ETM or extensive dance teaching experience HOWEVER we are lenient with this as you may already have the required skills and a natural aptitude for the methods of choreography delivery without having been formally taught. It would be unfair of me to exclude you from the possibility of helping women to feel good about themselves via Strutology®.
Enthusiasm and passion for the Body Positive Movement is key.
IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE
Warning: Extensive Zumba teaching experience or any other “track-by-track” dance fitness product/concept will not necessarily prepare you for the contents of this course.
Building up choreography, layer by layer, block by block, using add-on technique and a continuous beat is how Strutology® is taught. Exercise To Music is an ideal foundation.
YOU MAY SIGN UP FOR THE COURSE BUT PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WITHOUT ETM THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT YOU MIGHT NOT PASS THE ASSESSMENT ON THE DAY. YOU ARE AGREEING TO ENROLE ON THE COURSE AT YOUR OWN RISK OF BEING REFERRED AND POSSIBLY NOT BEING SUCCESSFUL.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM REFERRED?
If you are unsuccessful on the day you will have lots of feedback to go away with so you can practice and work on the skills required.
You will then film a video of you teaching a small section of the class – just to camera initially. If necessary we may require you to teach a small group of volunteers for further assessment. We will assess the video and let you know if there is any more work to be done or if you have passed. If this process goes on for three or four attempts at that point we decide together if Strutology® is really the route for you.
