Maria Cavazzon: Educational Assistant and Dance Teacher

How a dance teacher of 30 years decided to be a part of the solution for bringing thoughtful and accurate scores to the Acro industry …

Maria has been teaching dance for 30 years and knows a thing or two about the industry.

She adjudicated before she had her children, so there has been a bit of time since she’d last sat on a panel, and she felt that now was a good time to get back into it.

She heard about the ADA online and was really excited to be a part of the course and community, because she knew that she wanted to brush up on her adjudicating skills and get back in the game.

Maria is a researcher – she gathers as much information as she can to make sure she’s making informed decisions. So, she knew that the Acro Dance Adjudicator course was coming from leaders in the industry that she trusted.

And after looking into it further, she thought “this is going to be great!” And four weeks – the duration of the course seemed doable … everything about it got her excited.

Maria really wanted to be more confident while adjudicating in general, and she knew from experience with her own students at competition for Acro – their adjudications were always very vague, and not really justifying the mark, and with very few adjudicators with Acro certification in the industry … she knew she could make a difference by becoming an Acro Adjudicator, now that she was committed to jumping back into the game.

Now Maria is a certified Acro Dance Adjudicator and is excited and ready to jump back into the competition circuit and to be a part of the solution, for bringing thoughtful feedback and accurate critiques into the Acro competition industry.

Rhonda Roberts: 

Professional Dancer and Personal Trainer

How this former professional dancer with no Acro background is making a BIG difference for the next generation of budding professional dancers …

Rhonda had an amazing 20-year professional dance career! Since then, she has become a personal trainer and highly sought-after dance educator.

A couple of years ago she was asked to adjudicate at a competition that was all Acro! She was extremely nervous because she didn’t have a background in Acro Dance, and they were doing things she had not seen before.

After that experience, she knew that she wanted to get training on how to adjudicate Acro Dance, and she knew that through her experience as a professional dancer, and with the right Acro Adjudication education, she could really make a difference for up and coming young dancers.

Now that she is certified with the ADA, she is able to combine her experience as a personal trainer, understanding what the dancers are doing physically, with her experience as a professional dancer, understanding the overall dance technique and artistry, with her new understanding of Acro Dance technique – rounding out her skills as an Acro Dance Adjudicator. 

Now that she has combined all of these elements, Rhonda is able make a difference in a big way for up and coming dancers, to help them prepare for their professional careers.

How Does Acro Dance Adjudicator Certification Work?

The Acro Dance Adjudicator (ADA) Certification course is a four-week, guided online course, offered twice per year.

Each week, a new module is released. Participants complete the module content, then participate in a live video coaching call to ask questions and discuss.

Each module content takes approximately 1-2 hours each week to complete. Coaching calls are approximately 60-90 mins each week.

Participants are not required to attend the coaching calls live. Participants who cannot be live on the calls may submit questions ahead of time to be answered on the call.

Coaching calls are not mandatory, but are a helpful additional resource offered to participants.

At the end of the four-week course, participants will be given a sample Acro Dance competition routine to voice over and submit for evaluation. Upon approval from the Certifications Director, participants obtain their official ADA certification, and may advertise their credentials as such.

Once certified, adjudicators get FREE access to the “Next Level Roster” membership. Members of the “NLR” get yearly access to “What’s Trending” in the Acro industry, AND get to have their name, headshot and bio on the ADA directory.
