Online Resource Certifications

6 Hour* Online Independent Study Courses offering certifications for each of our published dance curriculum resources.

Canada’s National Academy of Dance Education has published a variety of curriculum friendly resources that can be easily adapted, modified and used in both dance studio and classroom settings.


We have designed a 6 hour* Independent Study Course for each resource that helps dance educators not only better understand its purpose and learning objectives, but also allows educators to try and test each one out in a safe setting, before using them into their classrooms.


This certification is offered as a Independent Study Program. After enrollment students are provided with the course texts, lessons, assignments and resource(s).  Students follow along with the lesson plans at their own pace.  Students have 90 days from enrollment to complete the course and submit the assignments and projects.


After the student has successfully submitted and passed all assignments as per the course expectations, dance educators will not only leave with a certificate acknowledging their participation, but a better understanding of how to adapt, develop and assess their dancers using the said resource. 


  • Improv Inspirations Series
  • Creative Movement Inspirations
  • Elements of Dance
  • Math Dances
  • Movement Ball OR Movement Scarves Series


All resources are available for purchase on their own, without the certification course, through our online shop. https://store.cnadedu.com/product-category/resources/

However, those dance educators interested in receiving a certificate acknowledging the program completion, will also receive the resource, which is included in the program cost.
