Get Certified! How To Train For Your DVIDA Professional Exams - DVD

Produced by Dance Vision 2005. DVD 160 minutes and the Guidebook is 55 pages.

Does not qualify for $10 offer.

The Guidebook provides a complete written guide to ProDVIDA certification exams. You will find details on exam logistics and procedures, many of which are not discussed in the visual media. This guidebook also documents key information from the visual media, such as an explanation of each of the dance elements, a list of what will be required on your exam, and a list of the specific teaching questions you will be asked on your exams.

The visual media (DVD) provides an overview of the exam process. You will see detailed demonstrations of each dance element as well as many examples of exam questions correctly answered and demonstrated. The visual media also contains two mock one dance exams from beginning to end: an American Rhythm Junior Associate Rumba exam and an American Smooth Associate Waltz exam. Watching these exams being demonstrated will demystify what your own exam may be like.

    We are studying the Get Certified Guidebook, DIVIDA manuals and tapes. We are studying to take the certification in the Junior Associate American Style Core Dances.
    Your teaching information has been very valuable to us.

    Thank You,

    "We aren't interested in teaching but realized the the process ourteacher went through to be certified helped his dancing. Therefore we decided to learn the syllabus in detail. We recently bought 'Get Certified! How to train for your DVIDA Professional Exams' and we feel it is also for the serious dancer interested in learning the technical details of dance than can make the amateurs look like professionals. Not only does the DVD fully explain aspects of dance such as CBM and Line of dance, it contains golden nuggets of why certain steps are taken a certain way. We can't recommend it highly enough and feel it will help our dancing immensely. Thanks for producing such a high quality DVD"
