The Bronze I class

After completing the eight week Basic class, student move into the Bronze I class.
This class reaffirms the basic steps learned in the prior 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.

Class Representative: Paul Miller, Instructor: Doug Shafner


The Bronze II/Silver class


After passing the test to move out of Bronze I, the students in the Bronze II/Silver class 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.

Class Representatives: Sally Mettler and Chuck Fenstermaker, Instructor: Larry May


The Silver/Gold class


Reserved for the truly obsessed dancers this final level of instruction...the Silver/Gold...is for the most Advanced students
where they focus on learning the most complex, challenging steps. They will also work on improving their technique and timing.
