Our exam is based on common sense, an understanding of mature responsible dance instruction and basic ballet vocabulary. Anyone who has at least one year of teaching experience or 1 year of college dance training and is at least 18 years old is eligible to take our online test. Most of the questions are multiple choice.

Here are a few sample essay questions and impressive responses from
our Certified Dance Teachers:

Question #32:
Instructors should strive to develop a consistent teaching syllabus for each level of instruction and each technique......
"Having a consistent teaching syllabus for each level of instruction in incredibly helpful in managing the classroom and developing each level in progressions. When I teach a beginner class, I want my lesson plans to flow into the needs of the next level I hope to take my students to. If I have a consistent syllabus, then I also have a consistent measurement of how well the students are progressing. A syllabus can be altered if needed to improve teaching technique within the goals of the progressions."
-Tammy Toma, Hawaii, USA

Question #50:
Teaching dance classes should be a learning experience for both the students and the instructors...

"Teaching is always a learning experience because you have to learn how to do everything. It is a strange process going from being a dancer to being a dance teacher, but it is such a rewarding and a fun experience being their mentor and watching that light bulb go off in their head when a move or combination clicks for them, and just watching them grow as dancers and knowing that you helped them achieve that."
Lindsay Gray, Texas, USA


Question #54:
Please briefly state why you enjoy teaching dance...and why you think dance training is beneficial for children and adults.
"I love to teach dance! I love the fact that I'm helping students become the dancer they are today and are going to be in the future! Dance training is really beneficial for childrean and adults because you can gain confidence getting up on stage and showing everyone you have that confidence."
- Olivia Thompson, Nova Scotia, Canada

"I have been dancing since I was three years old and I have loved every minute of it! I loved all of my teachers, and I wanted to share my knowledge with others. Dance teaches more than just steps. It teaches self-esteem, self-confidence, determination, hard work and dedication. The things I learned in dance as a child helped me to grow into the adult I am today."
-Allison Kofke, Pennsylvania, USA
