Frequently asked questions
What venues are suitable for Clubbercise classes?
Pretty much any venue as long as it can be darkened (in summer as well as winter).
It doesn't have to be pitch black, but you'll want to minimize the amount of light coming in to create a nightclub atmosphere.
What qualifications are required to become an instructor?
You need to hold one of our recognised qualifications in order to be accepted onto a Clubbercise training course.
Acceptable qualifications - UK
Acceptable qualifications - Australia
If you're from another country please email us or call +44 (0)20 7183 2718 before booking the course. Our opening times are 10am - 5pm Monday - Friday (GMT).
How do I pass the course?
You'll be sent two routines to learn before the course. These form part of the assessment, you will be assessed on your ability to:
- Demonstrate safe and effective technique
- Demonstrate the Clubbercise Teaching Model
- Follow music on beat with good timing and phrasing
When the assessment process is complete we award everyone a PASS or REFERRAL. With online courses, you'll be able to submit up to three video assessments after the course. Our aim is to help you pass and we’ll do everything we can to get you through.
Please note that if you do not pass the course you will not be able to teach Clubbercise classes.
How do I purchase Clubbercise glow sticks?
You can buy glow sticks in batches directly from our online shop and you can sell them to your clubbers to make a profit (the RRP is £6/AU$10 per pair). They become available once your licence is active. Our glow sticks are reusable and recyclable.
What sort of lighting do I need?
You'll need some disco lighting to create a nightclub atmosphere, you can light a small dance/fitness studio for as little as £50/AU$85. If you have a larger venue you will want a few more lights to create an authentic club effect. Once you become licensed you will receive a special discount code from our sound and lighting partner Sound Dynamics, you can view their lighting here (UK & Europe only). The 'Moonglow' lights and UV bars are very popular.
Is Clubbercise completely pre-choreographed?
The core routines are created by our Pro Choreographers - this helps to maintain consistency so that our Clubbers know what to expect at a class. However, we think creativity is important too and that's why we give our instructors the option to choose their own music and create their own routines for up to five tracks per class as long as they follow the rules outlined in the Class Components section of our Instructor Pack.
What's the minimum age for class participants?
The minimum age for Clubbercise classes is age 16 unless the instructor is licenced to teach Family, U13 or U18 Clubbercise classes.

Do I need a Clubbercise licence to run classes?
Yes, you can only run Clubbercise classes if you hold a licence.
What does the licence fee cover?
The licence fee gives you the essentials to run successful Clubbercise classes - marketing materials, choreography, music, access to purchase glow sticks and more...
Will I be tied into a contract?
If you pay the licence fee monthly you are not tied into a contract so can stop at any time but you will no longer be able to run Clubbercise classes.
Do you need a music licence to teach Clubbercise?
In most countries, unless your venue is already covered you will generally need a music licence because we use original tracks from well-known artists not cover versions (the music is one of the key selling points of Clubbercise).
