Spin City have an ongoing commitment to instructor training and development. We realise as an instructor how hard it can be to constantly develop new material – or to find the time to attend private lessons, workshops and masterclasses. Our aim through the Team Spin City website is to provide you with everything you will need to plan your lessons and your own training, in one quick and easy place. You can expect to find a constant stream of new material that is achievable for the average instructor and the average student. Material which is both affordable and accessible. Do you need new moves? Do you want to know interesting transitions? Struggling to write your own choreography? Need a new warm up this week? Would you like to download a contract for your instructors or an up to date risk assessment template? You can find everything at Team Spin City. You don’t need to be a Spin City certified Instructor to join us to stay motivated and inspired!
