Read Pre-Course Activities & Assessment Instructions
Please read the SOSA Dance Fitness Pre-Course Activities and Assessment Instructions carefully before you begin your pre-course learning tasks.
Read Training Resource Manual
You are required to read the SOSA Dance Fitness Training Resource Manual before you attend the course and complete an Online Theory Assessment on the basics of dance and fitness.
Complete Pre-Course Online Theory Assessment
In order to complete your Pre-Course Online Theory Assessment, please log-in to Classmarker using your personal log-in details which have been emailed to you.
The Pre-Course Online Theory Assessment includes multiple choice and open questions. Please ensure you read all of the instructions carefully before you begin. The pass mark is 70%, and contributes 30% of your total mark. The assessment is timed, and cannot be submitted until every question has been answered.
PASSWORD TO ACCESS THE TEST IS ‘SOSA’
You will receive email notification of your final mark within 48 hours of completing your assessment. You will also receive a Certificate of Achievement. If you do not meet the required pass rate first time, you will be given a second attempt.
*Please note – Classmarker is an automated electronic scoring and marking system, and is very sensitive to any variation in spelling, punctuation, case and format. Every theory assessment is also graded manually by our Assessor so please do not be alarmed if you think you have answered a question correctly and the system marks it as incorrect, as this will be rectified during the manual grading process.
Learn Solo Salsa Assessment Routine
You are also required to perform a set Solo Salsa Instructor Assessment Routine as your final practical assessment, which you will need to learn before the day.
You are encouraged to practice this as much as possible and add in your own sass and style! We will be looking for a good knowledge & understanding of timing, rhythm, co-ordination, accuracy, styling, cueing and verbalisation, interaction with your group and how they respond to you and your overall teaching ability. This is nothing to worry about, and I do not expect your technique to be perfect, I just want to see that you are enthusiastic and engaging for your participants. You are welcome to perform this routine either facing or backing your participants, so please stick to what you would normally do (please remember if you are facing your participants you will need to perform everything in ‘mirror image’ leading with your left foot so that your participants lead with their right foot).
PLEASE READ OUR PRACTICAL ASSESSMENT CONDITIONS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY SO YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS EXPECTED OF YOU.
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to follow us on social media and feel free to add our SOSA Dance Fitness banner to your website or social media pages to tell your clients and friends that your classes will be launching soon!
We are here to support you 100%, so if you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
