Level 1 Instructor Training & Professional Development Program
"From The Heels Up Level 1 Instructor Training & Professional Development Program" is for you if:
You are a current or aspiring heels-based pole (formerly Exotic) instructor.
You want to become a professional heels instructor.
You are committed to growth, constantly seeking ways to improve your teaching & dance technique.
You are committed to learning & believe in investing in your own education.
You want to learn in a progressive, supported program with two industry leaders, Indi Pole Dance & Jazzy K.
Foundational elements & how to teach them:
Over 8 weeks you will have many opportunities to practice your teaching skills both online & in-person through the program, through teaching practice sessions & meetups (where possible).
You will receive regular feedback from Jazzy and the IPD team on your teaching, to help you improve in real-time.
Each week you will have an assignment or assessment, to keep you on track & accountable. Some will be conducted during class time while others will be completed outside class.
We believe that to be a great instructor you must strive to constantly improve your dance skills. For this reason, you will develop a personalised professional development plan & execute the plan throughout the program, with our support.
