Frequently Asked Questions

Think of the Certification (Basic Package) as an intensive continuing education. If you want to explore the theory of movement Liquid Motion style, it is a one time exposure. After the 3.5 days of training, you will have your notes and a hard copy of the manual to explore on your own, and not teach. The License (Premium Package) allows you the ability to teach, as well as give you ongoing access to the on-line content (Videos, electronic manual, pre-written class outlines, branding materials, listed on our website, etc.). The online content will include what is covered in the Certification, in addition to 60+ plus moves, sequences, and conditioning videos. After the certification, with the license, you have unlimited access to all of the content on-going, to review, refresh, etc., as long as your license is current.

Yes, you can add the license at anytime. If you do so before the end of your certification training, the price is the one time fee of $180. Anytime after the training ends, the cost is $240, one-time annual fee or $20 monthly. For either option, you will just login with the username and password you created when you registered, and click the "Upgrade to License" button to the top right.

Unfortunately attendance is required for all 28 hours of the training. It is essential that you are present for the entire 3.5 days.

• Covered knees are required. Leg warmers are okay, but knee pads are recommended

• Arms and legs should be covered with something fitted and that will not stick to floor.

Heels Certification

The Liquid Motion® Heels Certification is designed to give the everyday person everything they need to start dancing safely and successfully in platform heels.

Dancing in heels is a skill that cannot be learned overnight, for the simple fact that it requires a different kind of strength, muscle engagement, body awareness, and flexibility that the everyday person usually does not have. Most of the pros we see nowadays are lifelong dancers who have been training their feet, ankles, legs and hips for a very long time. Well, what about the rest of us?

Liquid Motion Heels takes students through a safe, educational, and fun step-by-step progression designed to help real people start dancing safely and successfully in heels. The Liquid Motion Heels method is a highly stylized approach that follows and builds off of the Liquid Motion 1.0 Certification*. However, this information is necessary for anybody wanting to add heels to their repertoire of skills.

The Liquid Motion Heels certification is a two-day, 16-hour training. Each day will consist of learning NEW Liquid Motion moves and ideas in heels, as well as learning specific Liquid Motion vocabulary and how to apply our five fundamentals and techniques. Students will be guided through extensive movement exploration to teach them how to translate their new-found skill set and incorporate it into their current Liquid vocabulary. Lastly, we will break down conditioning exercises, strength training exercises, and flexibility exercises as they pertain to heel work. Students will learn about the effects heel work can have on their bodies, in addition to what they must do to restore and rebalance themselves once the heels come off. Students are urged to move slowly and safely through each day; this kind of new technique won’t happen overnight.

All students are required to bring at least two pairs of new 7” or 8” platform heels. A complete supply list will be sent to students before their scheduled certification.

* All participants must have successfully completed the Liquid Motion 1.0 certification training *

 *You do not need a License to register for this level. Participation in 2.0 does not affect your Licensed teaching status.
