Here is the announcement that was posted:

NIA White Belt Teacher Training Course at Star Ballroom - April 28 - May 4, 2017

The Course took place in five full-day sessions and one half-day session at Star Ballroom from Friday, April 28, 2017 through Thursday, May 4, 2017 (excluding Monday, May 1).
A Meet & Greet/ Initial session took place at 5:00 PM, Thursday, April 27, 2017 at Star Ballroom.

This Intensive Course was taught by Gail Condrick, certified NIA Teacher Trainer, and hosted by Jody Dancer, who is the only certified NIA Black Belt Teacher in South Florida.
The levels of NIA training start at White Belt and progress to Black Belt, which is the highest level.

Nia is a dance fitness program that provides a great way to enjoy moving to music while exercising the whole body. The acronym “NIA” originally was used to mean “Non-Impact Aerobics,” but, the concept has evolved and grown. Jody explains, “Nia is a Fitness Fusion of Martial Arts, Yoga and Dance.” “In our classes, I use ‘Nia’ to mean ‘Nine Adventures in Dance!’ Jody says.

According to NiaNow, the website of the official Nia-Now National Organization, “Nia is an exhilarating, body/mind practice based [on] the philosophy that exercise should feel good, and movement can optimize health and promote well-being.”

As explained on the NiaNow website,

“The Nia White Belt Training is the first level of a five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. If you have a desire to share Nia in a professional capacity, the White Belt Training is your entryway into teaching. Those who choose to pursue the path of personal enrichment use this training as a starting point for becoming a master student.”
