What is the weekly/monthly time commitment for the training? During the first 6 weeks, you will be focusing on reading the course materials, watching Joimove training videos, and taking part in live sessions and Q&As. During the second half of the course, you will be practising dancing and getting ready for your own classes. The course will likely take 5-10 hours a week.
How will I access the course materials? Your course will be delivered weekly on Mondays commencing the week of July 5th, 2021. You can download/print the instructor manuals if you wish or read them online. The course videos cannot be downloaded; however, they can be watched on any device and streamed at your convenience.

Can I still design my own dance and exercise routines after my training? Yes, the Joimove technique is flexible and encourages instructors to build on their own uniqueness.
I trained in dance or fitness instruction years ago. Is this course still suitable for me? If you have a dance/sports instruction background, but have not been working in the field recently, this training is still suitable for you.
I don’t have any formal dance training. Can I still join? For our intensive summer term course, we are currently looking for candidates with dancing and/or fitness knowledge and experience. Please fill in the application form and get in touch. We also have extremely skilled Joimove leaders in our team who had no prior formal dance education. You might become one of them!
Can I get a refund? Because of the nature of the materials and training, once you have access to your course materials there will be no refunds.
If I can’t attend one of the live sessions, will I be able to watch it later? The Q&A sessions will be recorded, but the live Joimove sessions are not. You will have unlimited access to our on-demand Joimove sessions as part of your learning.

Your current Public Liability or/and Professional Indemnity insurance for sports/dance/fitness/yoga/movement teachers will continue to cover your Joimove classes.
I only want to teach classes for the elderly/only for new moms with babies. Is this course for me? This intensive summer course will provide you with the Joimove fundamentals. You will become a Joimove instructor and start running Joimove joyfulness dance and wellbeing classes for all. If after your training you want to gain expertise in one of our specific programs like Dance with Babies Babywearing dance, or Joimove Seniors, you can choose to sign up for personalised training with Joimove trainers upon graduation.
