ProDVIDA Introduces "One Dance At A Time" Certification Examinations

Attention Professional Teachers and Competitors: ProDVIDA is now offering professional dance instructors and competitors the opportunity to obtain their professional certifications in a unique, supportive, and manageable way. You may now take your professional examinations ?One Dance At A Time?. When you complete all of the dances for a particular level, you will then receive your full certification.

Here are some benefits of the "One Dance At A Time? concept:
  • After your first test, you will get feedback from the examiner, as well as receive your test scores. This will allow you to study more efficiently for the next exam. You will also be more comfortable and confident on the next exam.

  • Your overall technique will improve from one test to another. For example, if you miss heel leads in the Foxtrot, you probably would have missed them in the other dances as well when taking all the dances at once. By having time to make corrections, your results will improve with each exam. Therefore, you will be better trained and improve throughout the process.

  • You will receive a ?Certificate of Completion? for each dance exam you take. This will add credibility to your teaching and reputation.

  • You will be able to pace yourself and become certified in a way that works for you. You are likely to be more motivated to get started when you realize that the task is not overwhelming, but something you can do in ?bite size? pieces.

  • The American Smooth, International Standard, and International Latin ?One Dance Exams? will follow the same format as the multiple dance exams.

    For the American Rhythm ?One Dance Exam? you will be required to complete the dancing portion of two (2) dances and the theoretical portion of one (1) dance for each examination. (Please refer to the ?Instructions for the ProDVIDA Professional Candidate? for the details of each exam.)
