This course will be live online using the Zoom technology platform. You do not need a Zoom account. You will receive an emailed link to click to join the daily sessions.  You can use a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone. The bigger the screen, the easier it will be for you to see. Having a connection between your device and a large screen TV or monitor is ideal and highly recommended.


Length of the Course:

• This course begins on July 30. The Zoom room opens at 3:30 pm, and the course is held from 4 pm to 7 pm.

• Full days on Zoom run from 10 am to 7 pm, with breaks.

• There is an optional morning practice with April Leffler at 8:30 am.

 • The last day, August 8, runs from 10 am to 1:30 pm.

All times are Eastern Daylight Time. If you live in another time zone, we strongly encourage you to place a clock next to your computer with EDT on it to keep the time of the course clear. Evenings provide time to work on your movements and presentation.  You MUST be able to attend all sessions in order to be accredited. There will be some free time after lunch. *Schedule is subject to change.*


Meals are on your own. It is recommended that you plan meals ahead and either have them prepared in advance or simple to put together quickly.


Signature Referral by Two Active, Accredited TCC Instructors: When the two instructors are confident that you are ready to attend Teacher Accreditation, they will SIGN your referral form (available on the website above or from the course host). The ORIGINAL signed form is to be sent to the Course trainer (Dan Pienciak, P.O. Box 231, Bradley Beach, NJ 07720). A copy is to be sent to the Host (April Leffler). This need not be sent with your registration form. It can be sent in later, but your registration in the course is not complete until the Host receives it.

Accreditation is not guaranteed by the referral form nor by your attendance at the course. Your accreditation certificate is awarded at the end of the course at the sole discretion of the Course Trainer. The Teacher Trainer will keep students apprised of their progress and readiness throughout the training.


Registration and Referral Forms are due at least 30 days prior to the course. To ensure your space, send in your deposit and registration form as early as possible. If you are not able to get two signatures because the teachers feel that you are not yet ready, your deposit will be refunded in full if you cancel by July 1st.


Auditing teachers will be considered if space is available. You must make a reservation with the online host, April Leffler.
