Absolute beginner level. If you have taken none or just a few dance classes of any style, you belong to this category. We wish you a warm welcome! Dance is for everyone and welcomes everybody!
You have taken dance classes for a few months up to a year. You are confident with the basic steps and you can do simple combinations but have limited (or none) body movement and styling. Ladies are able to follow simpler combinations. Both partners have an understanding of the rhythm and music. This is the level for you. Be persistent, dance with as many people as you can and in no time you will move forward to another level and be even more satisfied with yourself and your dancing!
You have a good understanding of dance & music and are gaining a greater capacity to move from one pattern to the other. MEN: You’re also able to perform more turns, hand changes & directional changes with better balance and more styling. LADIES: You should be able to follow complex turn patterns comfortably and have the ability to demonstrate some interpretative footwork and body styling. We are sorry that your life is infected by the dance virus, but also happy to have one more member join us!
You’ve gained control of your body balance, timing & footwork and are able to move quickly from one pattern to the next. MEN: You have the capacity to remember & lead a series of moves with continuity & styling. LADIES: Multiple turns, spins & ducks are no problem for you. Intricate footwork is challenging, but fun for you.
