Welcome to Ballroom Dance Teachers College & Move Like a Champion!
Innovative Resources for Ballroom Dance Studios, Teachers and Dancers
Ballroom Dance Teachers College is the nation's premier vocational dance teacher training program. We have services to support dancers, teachers, and studio owners at every stage of their development. Our programs are raising the standards of professional excellence throughout all facets of the ballroom industry.
Move Like a Champion is a revolutionary program created by Top Teacher Diane Jarmolow and World Latin Champion Kasia Kozak. This program of 64 exercises will help you correct problems that plague many dancers: weak frame, sloppy feet, awkward movements, small strides, etc. Most students are frustrated at hearing their instructors repeat the same vague instructions ("Keep your shoulders down!", "Stand taller!", "Tuck your tailbone under!"). These exercises will teach you how to move with grace, impeccable posture and the strength that are the hallmarks of great dancers. Gain an understanding of how your body works, from the inside out, so that you can take charge of your movements on the dance floor. Use Move Like a Champion to improve the quality of your movement in all of your Ballroom, Rhythm and Swing dancing!
