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!
