Here's what a few of our TDW-Certified Instructors have said about the course...

"As an instructor in the fitness and wellness industry I have attended many trainings, courses, and certification programs, and I must say that I was thoroughly impressed by the level of organization and attention given at The Dancer's Workout® instructor certification program. In fact, I would even go as far as to say it is the best training I've been to, and that is something! In the past I have attended trainings only to find myself feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information, underprepared, and alone in starting my own classes. I left The Dancer's Workout® training feeling confident, supported, and ready to go. Jules is so caring. She has done and is doing everything in her power to set us up for success! Thank you Jules."

"The Dancer’s Workout® program itself and the TDW Instructor Certification course are amazing! I first fell in love with the classes as a student and then decided to join Jules on her journey and mission to spread the joy of dance to current and former adult dancers everywhere! Together we created this fabulous online TDW Instructor certification program, and I am so proud of it! I have personally gone through the entire program and have become a TDW-Certified Instructor. I now continue to take classes with Jules on a daily basis and also teach my own TDW classes each week, and I love every minute of it! One of the things I love the most is the amazing community we have built using the community-building techniques described inside this online course."

"I own a dance studio with the primary market being adults. We offer many technique classes including ballet, tap, and jazz throughout the week but I had been looking for a cardio dance class for years. I wanted to have a good balance of offerings at the studio and felt a cardio option was important. I had considered a Zumba class; however, with Marley floors I didn’t want street shoes on the dance floor. I stumbled across The Dancer’s Workout®️ and it sounded like a great fit. I became certified and have been teaching it at the studio for about five months now. It really is a fabulous and fun cardio workout and a great addition to our ongoing classes. It is attracting new clients who don’t want to enter into a traditional technique class. And my current clients love the carefree movements. As the owner and primary instructor at the studio I don’t have a lot of free time. I was concerned that taking on something new would be too much; however, I find that I am able to process and learn each master class fairly quickly with minimal disruption to my already full schedule. Plus, (and this is a huge plus!!) I am able to get a workout in as I teach it!! "

"The Dancer's Workout® (TDW) is top-notch quality, from start to finish! In addition to being a dance instructor, I am a group fitness instructor who teaches many styles-Zumba, Pilates, Barre.. I belong to the various organizations for which I hold professional certifications and am a strong believer and supporter of classes that are well designed and carefully planned to challenge the participants and help them grow. (I have been in way too many “fly by the seat of your pants” instructor-led classes.) With TDW, we review the key steps at the beginning of the class, and this lays out the design and tone of the class which in turn helps prepare the dancers. The building of the steps during each song is a confidence-builder. Then, the dance where it all comes together feels like a “live performance”! And as dancers, that is such a big thrill! Ending class with TDW bikini bootcamp routines takes you back to reality and the basics of strength building and stretching. Each one-hour class provides a well-rounded balance of dance and toning, which my students love. On another topic I wanted to mention that the design of the TDW educational material is superb. It is super-easy to navigate online. It is well-thought-out and chunked in modules for easy learning. I think the requirement to submit videos for feedback is imperative to ensure quality across the instructors-way to go! Support is bountiful with both Jules and Sara and all the social media options. The choreography is varied, as is the music, which keeps the classes interesting and challenging. I am excited and proud to be a part of TDW family, and my students love it!"

"Jules has done an incredible job of creating a community within her program. The certification program has been enlightening, encouraging, and hard work. Jules is so organized and presents all of her wisdom and knowledge in a high-energy, positive way. During the program, I learned a lot about how to be a better dancer, teacher, and person through the example Jules is and through the curriculum she has created. One of the things I loved best about the program was the amount of team building incorporated and the stressed importance of the relationships between the TDW family members."
