Training day schedule:

In just one, intensive day, you can qualify to teach!

Training includes ACT 1, 2 & 3 below.

First you will enjoy the theatrical experience of a 45-minute ChiChi FIT Class – the class you will learn to teach.

Following this you will:

⭐️ Break down and learn the steps and skills to teach each routine, to include effective warm-ups and stretches.
⭐️ Master techniques to deliver the best showbiz fitness classes on the market!
⭐️ Discover what makes ChiChi FIT’s programme unique & why classes are in such high demand.
⭐️ Learn how to establish your business effectively so it will expand and thrive.
⭐️ Be introduced to ZAZZ, your private membership network.

You will be observed dancing through routines led by your ChiChi trainer. This interactive session provides an opportunity for observation and tailored feedback.

As you dance through the routines, an assessor will be observing your performance, paying attention to various aspects such as technique, execution, and stage presence. This careful observation allows them to provide specific feedback that is tailored to your individual strengths and areas for improvement.

Once you have completed your assessment, you will engage in a one-to-one video call with your Trainer. During this personalized session you will receive individualized guidance to help you grow and improve as a ChiChi Fit instructor. This feedback will not only guide your development but also welcome you into the cast of ChiChi Fit.

During the call, you can have any questions answered and collaborate with your Trainer to create a personalized plan for launching and running your ChiChi FIT classes successfully.

REVIEWS

from instructors

I have just completed my training course at the weekend and I’m still absolutely buzzing from it. The training itself started with a 45 minute master class and I just knew instantly from that short amount of time that I had made the best decision. Danella is such a wonderful instructor, so welcoming and really puts you at ease whilst training. I currently teach in the community and my adults and kids can’t wait for their first class. I recommend anyone with a passion for musical theatre, dance or even love to sing along to show songs to give the classes or training a go. Thanks so much Danella I can’t wait to get started.

– Adele, Glasgow

Without ChiChi FIT I would never have found my sparkle.

– Lauren, Cheltenham

Well isn’t this fabulous!! A brilliant training day, exceptional graphics and IT stuff, both to support me and to promote the classes, and there’s ongoing support?… What’s not to like! I literally feel like I’ve just walked onto the stage with a full cast, director, choreographer, PR, tech – Thank you.

– Cath Hughes, Wales

ChiChi Fit is amazing! I did the training online from Australia and it couldn’t have gone better! Danella is an amazing trainer and made the process so fun and provided great attention to detail. I felt like I was in the same room as her and the other participants yet I was on the other side of the world. The programme is simply fabulous and I think we will see a lot more ChiChi classes popping up all over the world. Thank you Danella and ChiChi Fit for offering this amazing program and doing it all with such fun and class!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Anyone 18+ with a passion for musical shows, dance and fitness. Running ChiChi Fit classes does require a lot of energy, so you do need to be able to dance solidly for at least 45 minutes! However, rehearsing for your classes will soon have you high-kicking and flicking effortlessly. 

In-Person Training: clothing you can dance in, good trainers, a water bottle and some food, although shops are nearby.

Online Training: a good internet connection, the Zoom app installed and Jazz Hands at the ready! You will also need a small resistance band. You will receive a recommended band in your welcome email after booking a training.

  • Every ChiChi FIT routine is carefully choreographed from beginning to end to ensure it embodies the theatrical dance style from the show it has been taken along with an effective, results driven fitness element. The fitness moves are simple but make you look and feel like a dancer.
  • You will have access to filmed routines via the membership portal where you can learn and copy each routine.
  • We also provide training on how to learn routines easily and how to implement them in your classes along with written instructions of every step.

There are no prerequisites to becoming a ChiChi Fit Instructor, although a fitness or dance background is always a plus, along with a love of musical theatre! 

ChiChi FIT dance fitness instructor courses are considered a specialty certificate, just like Pilates, Zumba or Yoga. 

PASSION is essential!

TRY A CLASS

  • After completing your ChiChi Fit instructor training, you can begin teaching whenever you feel ready!
  •  Instructors act as independent contractors, giving you the freedom to set your own hours, schedule, prices and terms etc at any facility you choose. 
  • Before teaching your first class, you will need to allow time to practice on your own to become confident with the choreography of routines, the music and the lyrics! 
  • We also encourage you to set up your own social media page to get more clients. You’ll receive advice on this during the training.

We want to support your dreams, not replace them, or dampen them. This is an exciting opportunity to expand your performing career, placing you in the lead role, and all whilst keeping you fit, fabulous and financially secure.

As a professional performer you’ll know there is nothing sweeter than making a living doing what you love, however, the world of theatre is elusive. You may be between roles, working part-time, or need some extra cash. Becoming a dance fitness instructor allows you to do what you love, wherever you find yourself located, whilst making money. 

This is a way to keep you in, or get you back into the industry!

We know how much time it takes to teach a class AND create your own choreography. This is why we do it for you, so you can earn more money, quickly, whilst your class is guaranteed to get moving and sparkling! You can be certain that every routine has been carefully created to ensure your classes are the best in the industry.

There are plenty of classes around the UK (and even some in Australia & America), but if you can’t get to a live class, book an online class with founder Danella. See our classes in action, or contact us to experience a free taster session.

Our one-day ChiChi FIT training qualifies you to teach ALL the ChiChi programmes – ChiChi FIT, ChiChi ENCORE, ChiChi KIDS & ChiChi CHAIR. Our signature programme, ChiChi FIT, forms the basis of the training day, and through learning your ‘first class’ of ChiChi FIT routines, you also learn skills to modify routines for all age groups. You can ‘mix & match’ all ChiChi routines into every class (with the exception of ChiChi CHAIR). When the curtain comes down at the end of the day, your subscription to ‘Zazz’, ChiChi’s online instructors’ portal, will continue to deliver monthly trainings and routines in all the ChiChi programmes.

If you want to teach ChiChi CHAIR and none of ChiChi’s other programmes, you can purchase the Online training course and learn at your own pace. Submitting a video of yourself leading routines will form your assessment which will also include a 1-2-1 video call.

Each additional programme costs just £5 per month for all ongoing content and training – except ChiChi CHAIR.

If you train and qualify in just ChiChi CHAIR, membership to ‘Zazz’ is £25 per month with NO option to include ‘add-on’ programmes. This is because the CHAIR programme does not require the dance, aerobic and fitness skills that the other programmes require so it is not a guarantee that CHAIR instructors will have the transferable skills to automatically teach the other ChiChi programmes without attending a separate training day. If you choose to train in ChiChi FIT, each additional programme is £5 per month.

*Each programme offers new routines and trainings every month so you develop a huge library of interchangeable routines to ‘mix & match’ for your perfect class.
