|| The Basic
Beginners Class was developed for those who have
never had any kind of ballroom dance instruction.
This class rotates through an eight week cycle
introducing and instructing in the basic steps and
timing of a new dance each week based on the
schedule below. Students may also return to this
class if they feel the need to brush up on their
basic steps and timing.

the eight week Basic class, student move into the
Bronze I class. This class reaffirms the basic
steps learned in the prior basic class and
increases your repertoire of steps for each dance.
Instruction consists of 1 or 2 dances per month
with new steps and improvement in timing and
technique. After about a year, students take a
test in the different dances before proceding on
to the next level.

|Bronze II /
|| After passing the
test to move out of Bronze I, the students at this
level will add several additional steps to their
repertoire and focus more on dancing technique.
Students will focus on improving their ability to
lead and follow while staying in time with the
music. It generally takes between 1 and 2 years
for students to progress out of this class at
which time the students must once again pass a
test in order to move to the next level.
