Ballet fitness teacher training online

I finally found a training that suited me with the Ballet Hop instructor certification! after years of wondering about my dance teaching abilities. Camille and Maude know how to pass on their values ​​and give everything they have: rigor, professionalism, kindness, energy (even at 8am on a Sunday)… and their jokes! The possibility of completing both the theoretical training and the practical workshop online… it’s REALLY neat. And the manual is super well thought out. Long live the cohorts of Ballet Hop instructors!

We train our instructors in small groups. There are no pre-requisites apart from being in good health and physically able to teach the class (which includes cardio, muscular training and stretching components)

Comfortable clothes, ballet shoes or workout socks, a reusable water bottle and a pen. We will supply the Instructor booklet, as well as your first choreographed routine.

Annual re-certification: $129 +tx

We offer teaching jobs in our studios to our Certified instructors in priority. However, there’s no guarantee of employment.

Once you have accessed the training platform, the certification is no longer refundable or exchangeable. On the other hand, the workshop and exam dates can be modified up to 48 hours prior to your appointment.
