Bronze II / Silver Levels

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 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
