I thought this was extremely well-taught. The only thing I would change is the course advertising. It would have been helpful to know the distinction between course certification (passing the quiz) and becoming a Barre Intensity instructor (10 observation hours, 10 practice hours, video submission). The lack of these details was a bit misleading.
