WHY SHOULD AN INSTRUCTOR BECOME CERTIFIED?
The ProDVIDA Certification process is designed to enrich a dance instructor’s knowledge of all aspects of dancing and teaching. In addition to your confidence soaring for having met and mastered this challenge, certification has many more benefits:

Certification candidates must be at least 18 years of age. At the time of the exam, candidates will also complete an application for membership in ProDVIDA.

Become a better teacher

Preparing for a certification exam expands your understanding of dance concepts, improves verbal and presentation skills, teaches precise vocabulary for describing technical elements of figures, sharpens knowledge of musical terms, and enhances choreography skills.

Become a better dancer

The expertise required to know the Leader’s and Follower’s part to pass the certification exam catapults one’s dancing to an entirely new level. You will learn a series of golden rules that make your dancing more consistent, develop a language to be more effective in dance partnerships and achieve a mastery of technique that will stay with you forthe rest of your career.

Achieve an objective standard of professional excellence

The National Dance Council of America (NDCA), the highest governing body in the ballroom dance industry, recognizes ProDVIDA certifications. Upon successfully passing an exam, you will receive a certificate declaring your expertise to the world. You will be able to attract serious students, be a highly valuable employee in studios across the country, and be able to obtain a judging credential.

Recertification

A candidate may receive certification from the Dance Vision International Dance Association using certification credentials from any N.D.C.A. Member Organization, or any internationally recognized professional organization by meeting the Recertification Requirements below:

(The test is approximately one hour per exam.)

  1. A copy of your previous exam papers (showing scores) must accompany this request and be submitted to DVIDA along with the Examination Application and all applicable fees.
  2. You must take and pass the dance portion of the DVIDA exam in the same style and level of your existing certification. You will not be responsible for answering any questions on the theory of the dances.
