Why Choose Us for Your Ballroom Dance Training?

We’re proud to offer a one-of-a-kind dance education that has never been offered in Vancouver before!  Our Ballroom Dance Teacher Training (BDTT) program is based on the work of world renowned ballroom dance teacher, Diane Jarmolow, who formulated this system for teaching American Ballroom Smooth and Rhythm dancing from her over 20 years experience of teaching dancers to be dance instructors.  This method of teaching dance is so effective that even seasoned professionals, like Cheryl Burke of Dancing With The Stars, and two world champions have incorporated the BDTT program into their studios!


The DVIDA® Manuals and the BDTC Binder are required textbooks for the course. The accompanying DVIDA® DVD’s are recommended, but optional. The DVIDA® Bronze Manuals and DVD’s are available from Dance Vision, and may be ordered online at, or by calling 1-800-851-2813. The BDTC Binder is provided in class and costs a one-time fee of $95.00. It includes all class handouts that are distributed over the entire program.
