DanceAbility Master Teacher Trainings
Are you ready to deepen your knowledge of the DanceAbility method?
What is a Master Teacher?
A certified DanceAbility Master Teacher has completed the initial DanceAbility teacher certification, has 200+ teaching hours in mixed-abilities groups and has completed the master teacher certification course. This is the second tier in a series of DanceAbility certifications.
The DanceAbility Master Teacher's Certification allows you to facilitate the Five-Day DanceAbility Intensive, in collaboration with DanceAbility International. Currently there are 23 Master Teachers across the globe, who are implementing their expansive knowledge of inclusive teaching in countries around the world.
After this training your options to make money can increase significantly as you are certified to teach the 5 Day Intensives. Usually you can charge from $250 to $450 per 5-day training. So for example, if you have ten people at $300 per person you can make $3000. On average a training like this may have 12-25 people per training.
