Dance Vision International Dancers Association http://dancevision.com
They are tops for instructional DVDs, tapes, and printed materials (but not inexpensive)! I use the syllibi and support materials from DVIDA exclusively. No other dance organization, in my opinion, provides the full spectrum of educational materials and resources for professional dance teachers and ballroom dancers who want to be the very best they can become. My certification exams are provided by DVIDA, and by early 2008, I will have completed the Full Associate Certification for the 12 Syllabus Ballroom Dances.
BallroomDancers.com provides a wonderful educational center for defining dances, for viewing brief demonstration videos, and even for finding song titles/artists to dance to. You can order CDs there, too.
