No more having to travel to a location and spend excess money on airfare or hotel. We got you covered with our all new Virtual Training. Best part is, all of our Virtual Trainings are done with a LIVE Master Trainer. You will be up and moving, be able to ask questions in real time, and learn from other participants. We pride ourselves on giving the best information so that you can take the knowledge you learned and create an Elevated Dance Experience in your town.

WHAT WE DELIVER

All of our Virtual Trainings will be hosted by a GROOV3 Master Trainer who’s first priority is your success.

All are welcome to attend the G1 portion of our training program. You will be expected to attend and participate in the full 8 hours (30 minutes for lunch) in order to be moved into the second round of the process (G2).

It will be very important that you:
  • Clear your schedule for the day
  • Clear a space in your home or studio where we can see your full body and be uninterrupted
  • Make sure you have a camera attached to your computer
  • Make sure you have clear audio
  • Have a trusted internet source
AFTER THE TRAINING (G2):
  • You will be asked to complete a set of 8 quizzes through The DE3K, our instructor portal. (We just want to make sure you caught all the goodies in the training)
  • You will be given access to practice choreography and a music mix to begin your submission process
  • You will have 30 days to practice and submit for assessment:
    • Speech
    • Warm-up
    • 3 eight counts of choreography
    • Cool-down
    • Exit Speech

All of this will need to be filmed and submitted to us in 3 easy steps. Each person will receive dedicated feedback and given a pass or practice. Once passed, you officially become a G3 and are certified to bring an Elevated Dance Experience to your town.

  • **Once officially certified, you have 1 year to activate your subscription before having to re-take the training
  • ***Subscription is $35/mo. direct debit. First two months are free
