To ensure you succeed, we provide you with a range of learning materials, including training manuals, comprehensive e-learning materials, and extensive support from our experienced tutors.

On the course itself, you’ll learn a wide-range of choreography that are pitched at varying levels of difficulty, engaging methods of planning and teaching step classes, and important anatomy and physiology considerations.

    LVL 2 Fitness

    From the very beginning the support i received was amazing and the tutor was very helpful in answering all my questions. We kept in touch by e-mail and telephone and I covered all the study areas at home in my own time while carrying on with my normal life and work duties.
