SOSA’s Online Training launch is perfectly in step with new STRICTLY! season

As the BBC rolls out its latest celebrity line-up for the 15th series of this top-rating dance extravaganza, Katy Barrow announces the creation of her new SOSA Dance Fitness Online Instructor Training Course - so you can be ready to launch your own classes when Strictly! fever grips the nation next month.

Not only is the timing right but the launch package too, priced at a very special all-inclusive £99! Unsurprisingly, this hugely discounted offer is time-limited and will run only until Monday, 28th August, which coincides with the show’s high profile red carpet premiere.

Even before it launches, this new SOSA Online Course has achieved Active IQ Recognition, demonstrating SOSA founder Katy’s dedication to delivering the highest standard of professional instructor training. Also good to know for those looking to boost their CPD is that all of SOSA’s courses have been awarded with a maximum 10 CiMPSA Points, as well as 4 REPS Points.

Course content is of course key to instructors’ decision making, which is precisely why she undertook the creation of the whole online training programme herself. Everything from the course manuals and videos, including a fabulous 45-minute Masterclass with Katy, gives a very thorough but fun training package that takes approximately 12 hours to complete.

“It was a big decision to take our training online, and it was very important to me that I was able to re-create the personal attention that we give when training in person,” she explains. “I’m really thrilled with what we have achieved online, which feels as though each instructor is training with me through every stage in the process.”

The online training covers all six key dance styles that feature in SOSA Dance Fitness classes - Salsa, Cha-Cha-Cha, Kizomba, Rumba, Samba and Brazilian Zouk. The online materials give a fantastic insight into using authentic dance footwork, arms and body styling but making routines totally accessible for everyone to love dancing, regardless of any dance experience.

“I’m really passionate about making SOSA a truly ‘inclusive’ community class,” Katy emphasises, “which means being genuinely suitable for all ages and abilities, shapes and sizes, faiths and cultures. All of our qualified instructors have found this to have a really strong appeal among their groups, and as demand is growing fast we need more fantastic, inspiring instructors to fulfil the potential out there.”

Katy has elected to keep the rolling monthly licence at just £10, to enable instructors to make their classes affordable for all. For this, instructors get four new routines every month, full access to an extensive choreography hub, plus unrivalled business support. All this gives instructors a fantastic incentive to get classes up and running right away, to take fullest advantage of the Strictly! ‘call to action’ to k-e-e-p dancing!

To find out more and to book your place on the new SOSA Online Instructor Training Course now, head to and click onto the ‘Be an Instructor’ menu or go straight to the SOSA Shop. Use the code ‘onlinestrictly99’ to secure the special £99 package by midnight on 28th August 2017.
