You are dreaming of becoming a Certified Latin Dance Teacher.
You never found the time to get your professional certification.
You are certified, but want to review to make sure you are up-to-date with the very latest in Latin technique, recognized by top-ranked professionals.

This program will allow you to get professional certification immediately after successful completion of training.

You will receive choreographed routines and learn
to dance them at your optimal level.
