Interested in learning to ballroom or Latin dance? Would you like to go through a host of amazing dances, to include the Ballroom and Latin dances? Come join us for this fun-filled weekend in which you will be exposed to a series of popular dances and exercises! We will cover half or more of the DSE social dances, so that by the end of the weekend, you’ll have a great understanding of how to dance them.

You will be required to sign an agreement stating that you will not use DSE routines, material, or products without the proper certification and authorization from DanceSport Endurance LLC. DSE is a Trademarked and Copyrighted product. Also, you will have to agree not to teach the DSE format by a different name. Finally, you will be required to request permission prior to using DSE derived email lists for promoting products other than DSE.
Trainees should wear professional looking aerobic pants/shorts and tops. Bring an extra change of clothes and something warm to put on during breaks and discussions. DSE logo t-shirts may be available for sale on site.
You will need to be able to swivel without hurting your knees, so I highly recommend that you have one of the two following types of shoes for teaching DSE:
1. regular athletic shoes modified at a shoe repair shop to have suede glued to the bottom (ball of foot) for swiveling/twisting/turning
2. dance sneakers (Capezio, Bloch)
3. other dance fitness sneakers (Nike, Ryka, and Skechers have versions)
4. We carry Ultimate Hybrid dance shoes which work very well for DSE
There is a cafe in the club and there are restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores within close distance. You are advised to bring drinks and snacks to keep you hydrated and nourished.
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
