Get DVIDA Certified in Move Like a Champion
DVIDA®, the Certification branch of Dance Vision, was created with the same high standard of excellence for which Dance Vision is known. The syllabus and exam structure were immediately approved by the National Dance Council of America, and the industry response has been overwhelming: the DVIDA® certification system is hailed as excellent, professional, and fair.
By adding the option of certification, dance teachers can challenge themselves to thoroughly learn and embrace this new language in the same way our certifications have empowered teachers to use a teaching language for footwork, foot positions, alignment, amount of turn, etc.
DVIDA® Certification Exam
To obtain certification, each participant will be given an examination (click here to view actual exam) testing the candidate’s ability to demonstrate how he/she would teach the concepts presented at the Move Like a Champion training.
Each candidate is required to bring a student who is new to the MLC principles with him or her to the exam. Candidates will be evaluated on his or her ability to teach ten of the Move Like a Champion exercises to the student. Exercises will be chosen randomly by the Examiner.
To be eligible to take the exam, you must have completed the 14 hour Move Like A Champion training with either Diane or Kasia, as well as purchased and studied from the Move Like a Champion book.
Certification Exam Location
For convenience, each candidate has three options regarding where the examination will be held:
1. In person with Diane or Kasia for 75 minutes in a mutually agreed upon location.
2. Via Skype (or similar technology).
3. Send in a DVD of yourself performing the exam. (requires test monitor approved by Examiners.)
Candidates are responsible for Examiners time ($150), studio rental costs if any (variable), DVIDA Exam Fee ($35), and where applicable: travel costs and exam monitor fee.
In addition, the exam may be taken in parts, to allow you to take a “slow and steady” approach. Here are your three choices:
1. Full Exam: Exercises 1-64
2. 2 Part Exam: Exercises 1-32; Exercises 33-64
3. 3 Part Exam: Exercises 1-22; Exercises 23-44; Exercises 45-64
If you decide to take the exam “in sections”, each exam will still be 75- 90 minutes, and the costs for each “section” are the same as if taking the full exam, except for the DVIDA fees ($20 per section).
