Heels Choreography Teacher Training

Join us for Pole + Dance’s Heels Choreography Teacher Training! This two day training includes 14 hours of instruction over two days, from 10am-5pm each day.

Our Heels Choreography Teacher Training covers all the elements that you need to create and teach fun and engaging choreography that your students will love. We’ll go over how to break down individual elements, create and teach transitions, chunk your choreography into accessible sections, musicality and groove, and safe heels technique.
