Effective Dance Teaching

An Online Course to Help You Become a Sought-After Dance Instructor in Your Scene

Improve Your Teaching. Deliver Engaging Classes. Grow Your Business.

Transform your teaching and inspire your students.


We are confident that any Dance Instructors can elevate their teaching quality by taking our Effective Dance Teaching Course because it gives you the necessary skills you need on how best to teach social dance.

There is more to teaching than just choreographing a few dance moves and expecting your students to copy what you do. Here is what we will cover in this course:

  • Dance Pedagogy
  • Class Management
  • Spatial Arrangement
  • Essential Teaching Skills
  • Team Teaching
  • Teaching Experienced Dancers

This course is for you if..

✓ You’re currently teaching Social Dance as a partner dance, such as Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Tango, Lindy, and so on.

✓ You’re already skilled at teaching the technical skills specific to your dance style, but want to learn more about class management, how to engage with the students, and how to create a conducive learning environment in class. You care about your students’ growth as a dancer and want to get the best out of them.

✓ You’ve been teaching social dance for quite some time now and are looking for inspirations that can reignite your passion for teaching the dance style you love so much.

✓ You aspire to be the sought-after Instructor in your dance scene who is known for your effective teaching skills and successful dance business.

This course is not for you if..

✗ You’re looking for technical skill tutorials specific to your dance style.

✗ You’re currently teaching stage dancers, dance artists, performers, or teaching dance exercise.


ELEVATE your teaching skills!

This course covers an Intro section plus 4 Modules of lessons with 21 videos in total. At the end of the course, you will get a 25page info-packed WORKBOOK to guide you into action straightaway after finishing the course, also an ongoing support from your course instructor as an added bonus.

This is my approach to teaching that I believe can be applied to any type of social dances. These guidelines are based on my personal research and years of intentional observations from both attending and giving dance classes, that I find useful and successful in getting positive feedback from students.

Julia @SoDance

With her MBA degree and entrepreneurial aptitude, Julia is the business brain behind the success of CubanSalsaSchool. In the 5 years she was running the school in Edinburgh, she grew the business from teaching just 4 beginners students to running classes with hundreds of students, 4 nights a week at capacity, as well as sold out social events. In order to reach out to a much bigger audience than her local scene and dance style, she then shifted her focus onto training predominantly dance instructors and dance business owners.

We get our high from helping people. At CubanSalsaSchool, our greatest reward was to see our students improve and grow as dancers and then as dance instructors. Most of them continued to teach now and some even started their own dance schools. So now we’d like to help you too, to be able to achieve your dream of having a successful and profitable dance school.

We hope you find this course useful.
