TWERKFAQ'S

FAQ's

Is there an instructor training in my area?
You can find all the upcoming training’s on our “Become an Instructor” page.

I can’t find my area on the list, but would love to apply to become an instructor, what should I do?
Not to worry, if I receive enough successful applications in your area I will create a training day for you! Please still complete the application form and state the area you would like a training and the area you intend to teach in.

Can I teach classes in Auckland?
I currently have a team of four working in Auckland, so unfortunately there are no instructor spots available for the Auckland region.

How do I become a Licensed TIONZ TWERKFit® Instructor?
To become a licensed TIONZ TWERKFit® instructor you are required to complete a one-day training course. At your training you will learn how to run your TWERKFit® classes, class content and tips and tricks to help you make them a success! I also have rules & guidelines alongside being an instructor to ensure the TIONZ standards are maintained.

Are there any pre-requisites?
There are no formal pre-requisites to become and instructor, however, I do expect you to have the ability to twerk already and attendance at a previous TWERKShop® will be very beneficial. Previous experience teaching is also advantageous.
You must be over the age of 18 to become an instructor, but there is no higher age limit. You can be either male or female and any size or shape.
As the classes are very demanding physically, a good level of fitness is required.

Do I have to know how to twerk?
Yes, you must have a good level of twerk ability to be a TIONZ TWERKFit® instructor. You don’t need to be an absolute pro, but you need to be able to pop, drop, shake etc comfortably. Training will not teach you how to twerk, but how to perfect your twerk and share this knowledge with others! It will provide you with lots of variations of the basic twerk!

Do I have to be female?
No, anyone can apply.

How do I apply?
To apply, please complete the application form on our “Become and Instructor” page asap. Please note you will need a short, low res video of you twerking for your application. Please have fun with the video, it doesn’t have too long or at all serious! Have fun and show me all of your moves 😉 It will not be shared or viewed by anyone other than me (Hayley, Founder of TIONZ).

I have submitted my application, now what?
Relax, open a beer, sit back and wait 🙂 I aim to respond to all applications within one week. If your application is successful, you will be contacted with further information and the instructions on how to book your spot for training. Pre-payment will be required to secure your spot.
Please note, as this is the initial roll out of instructor training, spaces will be limited to ensure enough dedication and support can be given to our new instructors. As spaces are strictly limited I recommend submitting your application as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
Please do not be disheartened if your application is not successful, continue working on your twerk and prepare for our planned second intake in January 2018!

I have been invited to a training! What can I expect from the day?
Training will take place between 9am and 6pm on your chosen date, with a 30 minutes lunch and two 15 minute breaks. Throughout the day you will learn everything you need to begin teaching TWERKFit® classes!

I am now licensed! Can I start teaching TWERKFit® classes straight away and how long is my license valid for?
Congratulations! Your license to teach TWERKFit® classes is valid for one year from training, providing you are a member of TION. You can start teaching classes straight away, however, I do recommend taking a week or so to promote your classes and also practice the class plans thoroughly to ensure you are completely comfortable with teaching!
