What dancers who have used the Smooth Training System have to say about the course …

We feel that her systematic approach was beneficial to us and helped us reach our career highlights of National Rising Star Smooth Champions and National Open Smooth Finalists. As Studio owners, we have continued to use Toni's Smooth Training System in our own teaching of elite level Pro Am students and in the training of all our teachers.

As a professional dancers, teachers and studio owners, we have witnessed our students changing and improving drastically within weeks by staying consistent and applying it for a short time everyday. The drills help you create muscle memory, give you structure and a great understanding of fundamental technique that will move you up to another level.

The most important fundamentals of this dance style I learned from one and only Toni with her Smooth Training System! I can call myself extremely lucky since the path with her and her drills opened the door for me to achieve my American Smooth dream career. I am forever grateful and everywhere I go I spread the knowledge I gained from my journey with this incredible women.

When you are looking for a structural consistency and results in your dancing, look no further than the creator of “The Drills” Toni Redpath! I couldn’t believe how much my dancing has changed since having “The Folder”. My favorite phrase “Not an option” showed me that following the rules with Toni will get me and my dancing to the highest levels of achievement!

Within one short year of her drills and guidance we saw our first big breakthrough winning the Arthur Murray rising star champion title. Through the years she has methodically taken us through the layers of technique and we have seen so much success along the way, eventually leading to our current title of Arthur Murray's Open Professional Smooth World Champions.
