Instructor Membership

Once you have completed the SHiNE™ Certification Training and are ready to join the Instructor Portal. A SHiNE™ Instructor Membership is required at a cost of $24.99 per month or $255.00 per year. This membership gives you access to all of the on-going benefits and tools.

Note: SHiNE Dance Fitness does not require annual re-certification for Instructors with active membership!

Other Costs

Depending upon your particular business model, you may also need to independently lease a location, secure group fitness music licensing and/or liability insurance. SHiNE Dance Fitness does not provides these services, but can give recommendations.

Note: SHiNE Dance Fitness does not have any hidden fees, collect royalties or franchise fees!

For Merchandise, Training Certifications and Instructor Memberships, SHiNE only accepts electronic payments through our website’s store. Payments are accepted from all major credit and/or debit card companies. PayPal is also accepted, however this payment method is more difficult to support for Memberships as SHiNE will not have access to your PayPal account for troubleshooting purposes.

SHiNE Instructor Members have access to all Instructor content through the shinedancefitness.com website, i.e. Instructor Portal. Access is available through mobile devices, laptops or desktop computers. Many Instructors also use their TV as a monitor.

Certification Training

Payment is due upon registration.

Early-Bird rates apply up to 1-month prior to the beginning of the Training Certification date.

No refunds will be offered to registered participants. However you can reschedule your training within one (1) year of your original purchase date with no additional fees.

Instructor Memberships

Billing automatically renews and is month-to-month or year-to-year, depending on the subscription purchased.

Although you might not be at HQ with us, we know that staying connected is important. All SHiNE™ Instructor Members can have access to our Instructor Private Facebook Group. This gives us an opportunity to share our successes, our struggles, thoughts, comments, stories and inspire one another. Despite the distance and any differences we all have a common love of SHiNE which brings us together.

We understand that from time to time maintaining your Instructor Membership does not make sense. You can cancel at anytime, but sorry no refunds for partial month/year usage. Note that after cancellation you will still have access to member-only content until your final billing’s subscription period runs out, i.e. – end of the current month or year you purchased. Account suspensions will block future payments and access to our website’s Instructor only areas, but can be re-enabled at a later date. An account can be Suspended one-time per billing period.  Note: Instructor Memberships inactive for more than 1-year may require attending a Training Certification again prior to activation.
