How Edie Developed
the Dance Business Management Academy
and Black Belt Salsa...
Over a period of twenty years teaching in hundreds of cities throughout sixty-three (63) countries throughout the world, Edie revealed a “system” of conducting classes and systematizing dance moves (not just Salsa) that magically created some of the best social dancers where ever she traveled.
Upon her retirement in 2009, she decided it was time to roll up her sleeves and reveal her “system” to the entire world. She taught herself how to use the latest in online cloud technology to develop an online Cloud database and worldwide teaching support mechanism called the “Black Belt System™ Cloud” so that teachers in every nation could AS A COHESIVE TEAM more effectively develop themselves individually as World Class instructors, and in turn, create some of the finest social dancers in their regions.
In 2012, with the help of a core group of dedicated instructors, students, beta testers, and professional advisors, the Black Belt Dance™ Online System was born. Now students from every corner of the globe can share the in joy of learning from some of the best instructors the world has ever known… the Black Belt Instructor team.

What a wonderful experience your course was!
You covered a lot of what I hadn't thought of, things that if I would have known before starting out that I would have done differently. It was a great learning experience and I will definitely utilize all of the knowledge that was given for my company and encourage other instructors to take your course as well! I would definitely recommend this course to all of my fellow instructors! - J.C. Ft. Lauderdale, FL
You certainly gave me great insight on how to improve how I teach my classes & how I conduct my business back in Atlanta. It was also great to meet other instructors & to have the opportunity to network with other dance studio owners all over the U.S... - S.C. Atlanta, GA
I felt that your stories told was the most important part. They were a great help in understanding the business side as a dance instructor, as well as the experiences that went on in getting to where you have become today. Another thing that I felt was most important - BLUE TAPE! I will attend another Instructors Training, in fact, I already have a few that are wanting to go to the next Instructors Training! - A.A. Los Angeles, CA
How to start ... OUTSTANDING! PHENOMENAL! LIFE ALTERING! I'd attended two of your classes prior to this (DBM and White Belt Certification) next level of certification. I had my chair upright, seatbelt buckled and my tray table stowed in the locked and upright position and still I wasn't prepared for the level of instruction and intensity of these courses.
No one teaches the whys like you do Edie. In many, many, many seminars and classes that I've attended. They tell you what to do ... but never the whys. You shared the whys, which in turn connected all of the dots. Being willing to recognize that I didn't know what I didn't know ... made the it possible to see the connectedness. WOW! I'm preparing myself for the next belt now. I am convinced, "Clarity is the first lesson in learning". You brought the clarity and I was more than able to learn!!!
Thank-you for taking the time and devoting the energy to designing and developing this system. You and your team deserve the highest accolades.
In the Navy we say Bravo Zulu when someone does something that deserves praise. BRAVO ZULU EDIE AND TEAM!!!
