DVIDA Bronze Group Class Program Benefits:
This Program has been created using a tried and true model of successful group classes. By providing studios with a detailed roadmap to the DVIDA syllabus, this Program will provide invaluable benefits to studios, teachers, and students.

1. Resource for teachers: The program alleviates the work of creating a class curriculum and choreographing routines from scratch. Using a pre-tested class format and pace, the program provides teachers with a detailed weekly breakdown of the patterns to teach and review, amalgamations to be danced and cumulative routines for each Bronze level of material.
2. Great for students: By teaching all four Smooth and all eight Rhythm dances together, students are encouraged to learn more than one dance and their learning is maximized. Teaching becomes more effective by using the interrelated method of teaching: demonstrating frame only one time for all the dances, comparing similar figures, showing common elements, teaching alignments, etc.
3. Supports Medal Exams: Classes support DVIDA Medal Exams by following the four Bronze Levels. Therefore, students may take an Exam upon completion of each class in the series. Medal exams are a great way for students to set goals, measure their dance progress, and stay committed to their dance training.
4. Success for Studios: With this Group Class Program, studios will be able to implement stronger, more successful group classes. Structured group class programs that lead students through a logical, definable path with clear goals are very appealing to students, and can create a lot of excitement and enthusiasm. Both group class and private lesson retention rates can be raised as a result.
5. Great Marketing Opportunity: Being able to advertise that a student will learn the Full Bronze Syllabus in the Smooth and Rhythm dances in only 8 months each with the opportunity to get certified is a powerful marketing tool.
