What You Need To Bring With You on Your Training Weekend

Prior to the weekend of Training we understand that your time is spent focused on your pre-learning. So to help you with the weekend we have compiled a list of items that you will need to bring with you for Training.

  • The Music Release and a device to listen to this during the weekend as there is time allocated to practise your track.
  • Choreography Notes for the Release.
  • Programme Specific Initial Training Manual (which you will have received at the time of booking). Don’t worry if you have lost the link as we will send the link again with your 2 Track allocation.
  • Certification Assessment Form
  • Training Kits (There will be a lot of physical activities during the weekend)
  • Warm clothes (Always useful to thrown on during the Theory Sessions)
  • Food and Drinks
  • Pen and Paper


To get the most out of your weekend we strongly advise that you prepare your two tracks and practise them a number of times so that you feel comfortable with them. Knowing your choreography will take away a lot of the stress of the weekend and allow you to absorb as much information and enjoy the module without the constant thoughts of learning your tracks.

At the same time don’t worry if you are struggling with learning parts of the track(s), over the weekend the Trainer will provide you with the skills and knowledge to help you learn the tracks.
