Instructor Workshop April 4-6 2014


This workshop is for directors and instructors of Dance Trance Fitness. Persons wanting to start up their own program are also invited to attend to get more information about the program. Public classes are offered on Saturday & Sunday for those just wanting to ‘dance it out!’

The workshop will begin at 12 Noon on Friday April 4th. More choreography will be shown on Friday and break out sessions will occur at both studios with specialty topics. Topics are now posted below so that you can plan your weekend and know which sessions you would like to attend.

All licensee members are invited to attend our workshop series. If you are not a license holder, but are interested in obtaining a DT license, please contact us for availability in this workshop. Persons interested in starting up their own Dance Trance program our encouraged to attend, please contact Beth Handline at for details.

Please note that this workshop is choreography intensive and is taught in an advanced format. This is not how we would introduce these routines to our class. We will go through at least 20 routines at a fast pace during the three day workshop. Break out sessions are scheduled so that you learn some of the important basics of teaching. If you want to the most out of this workshop, plan to attend all sessions. We would like you to know that the fitness portion of this workshop is intense. We dance for four or more hours each day. If you are not use to this type of workout it will be a lot for you. Please just plan to take breaks when needed and don’t be scared to sit out during the class sessions.

To benefit from all choreography and class sessions, make sure you plan to stay for each day’s complete session.  Workshop begins at 12 Noon on Friday and runs through Sunday til around 4 or 5 pM. Take full advantage of every second, you never know what you might miss! Please try to be in attendance when the workshop starts on Friday. Friday will be the most comprehensive day and we plan to take advantage of the entire afternoon.

Only attending Dance Trance License members receive video of this event.

Hotel accommodations and transportation are up to the attendee. You will need a rental car to transport between locations.

Choosing a Hotel:
Our studios are in two different locations. San Marco is close to downtown Jacksonville & our Beach studio is about 20 mins away on the beach (Neptune Beach) which is about 5 miles from Jacksonville Beach. We suggest staying close to either or in-between on State Rd 202 (JTB Hwy) which runs between the two locations (this is probably the cheapest option).


For discount reservations and info about hotels in the area, please contact our travel agent. We do have group rates for this workshop that may be cheaper than the rates you can get online.IW logo
