OPTION 2 – Learn the PlyoJam methodology and teach the PlyoJam format.
WE UNDERSTAND DANCE FITNESS
We recognize that spark in a person when they have a deep love for fitness, dance and inspiring others. You work hard to create an incredible class and choreography for your students. We also recognized the desire and the need to provide a class that meets the needs of ALL students. Whether it’s creating choreography that’s easy to understand and follow, or leveling up the intensity of the class to appease students looking to sweat harder and level up their workouts. THIS is the methodology needed to make your dance fitness class stand out from the rest.
ADD INTENSITY FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO LEVEL UP
Learn a set of techniques designed to help you seamlessly and safely incorporate plyometric inspired movements into your current dance routines without having to sacrifice your individual style.
MAKE IT OPTIONAL SO THERE IS NO BARRIER TO ENTRY
Learn how to enhance the fitness component of your routines by strategically placing OPTIONAL short, fast explosive movements in specific areas of your choreography, while preserving the existing movement as an alternative option.
CLEAN UP YOUR CHOREO SO STUDENTS KEEP COMING BACK
The PlyoJam methodology provides guidelines to create a routine structure that makes it easier for the instructor to teach and cue, making your class more accessible to dancers and non-dancers.
HOW WILL THE PLYOJAM METHODOLOGY
IMPROVE MY DANCE FITNESS CLASSES?
OFFER MORE INTENSITY. We offer an effective and safe way to level up your dance fitness class. We do this with a carefully crafted approach that gives instructors a set of techniques. This approach gives the instructor the creative freedom to increase the intensity they deem appropriate in their classes.
IT’S OPTIONAL. The short, fast explosive movements are not replacing the already existing moves, but rather adjusting them to allow the option of an explosive element. Your students will have options. If they don’t want to level up, they do not have to.
USE YOUR OWN CHOREOGRAPHY. The creativity that dance teachers possess is undeniable, which is why we designed our methodology to enhance the instructors already established choreography.
OR USE OURS. We also recognize the weekly and monthly grind instructors face when having to consistently create new material. It’s one of the reasons why we also provide over 350 already choreographed PlyoJam routines, along with new monthly releases in our backstage pass.

We require a 48 hour cancellation in order to refund your training fee. Please contact us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to cancel your training.

Great question! You do not have to be a professionally trained dancer to be a PlyoJam instructor! However, it is important that you have great rhythm and musicality, some understanding of music theory, particularly 8-counts, an ability to learn and memorize choreography, stay on beat and execute mid level dance combinations!
It is also important that you feel comfortable in front of groups and have leadership skills that will enable you to inspire and motivate. Often times, becoming an instructor can help shine a spotlight on these fantastic character traits that you possess.
IN PERSON TRAINING – An in person training is taught by a Master trainer or PlyoJam founder at a gym or studio. You will be eligible for 8 AAFA and .8 NASM CECs through this program. You will reap the benefits of working with a Master Trainer, asking questions and connecting with your trainer and other trainees.
HOME STUDY PROGRAM – This program was created for those who don’t have a live training scheduled nearby, have a tricky schedule or are anxious to get started immediately. The Home Study program is done entirely from home on your own time, without a Master Trainer guiding you. You will be eligible for 5 AAFA and .5 NASM CECs through this program. There are a series of videos and quizzes that are included in the home study program, as well as an optional video submission.
The Backstage Pass is an annual membership that gives you access to over 400 PlyoJam routines, marketing materials, and more.
By maintaining your membership to the Backstage pass portal, the license allows the licensee (the instructor) to teach in person PlyoJam classes, pop-ups, demos, festivals, etc.
Licensees (the instructor), or the venue (gyms, studios, rec centers, etc) at which you work, may NOT film and record PlyoJam classes with the intent to sell access to online/digital PlyoJam courses on any kind of platform.
Licensees (the instructor) may teach LIVE virtual classes via Zoom, Instagram Live, or other Live streaming platforms. Again, these workouts may not be recorded and used for later use as part of a paid membership.
A membership to the Backstage Pass membership is required to teach PlyoJam. This membership keeps instructors up to date on new choreography, best practices, safety, education and more.
You can, however, apply the PlyoJam methodology to your own dance fitness format without the Backstage Pass.
You may cancel your membership at anytime and the NEXT annual licensing fee will not be charged. However you may not be refunded for a licensing fee that was just charged. Upon membership cancellation, you will lose immediate access to the PlyoJam instructor portal. We suggest you cancel close to the date of your renewal so you maintain access as long as possible.
When you feel confident with the choreography and feel ready to teach, start approaching gyms, studios and rec centers in your area to get a class started! You will likely have to audition or even offer to teach a free demo class. Or you can even rent a studio and teach a class to your friends and family for practice. Reach out via email or just walk in! If you need help with approaching locations, let the PlyoJam team know. We might have connections or ideas in your area.
Payment depends on the facility at which you work. Gyms usually pay a flat rate. Anywhere between $15 to $40 an hour. Boutique fitness studios will typically pay $3 to $6 dollars per head. PlyoJam does NOT take any cut of your pay. The only thing you pay us is your Backstage Pass monthly membership fee.
We understand things come up which sometimes force instructors to pause their instructor memberships. In order to avoid paying the up front training fee, you must rejoin our membership within 12 months of pausing. Past 12 months, you will have to start over with the training process.
No! PlyoJam does not charge gyms or studios to carry PlyoJam classes. The only payment to PlyoJam is the instructor training fee and monthly Backstage Pass fee!
