Beyond Basics is Level 2:  Some experience expected.  A  dancer that has had some previous training and has knowledge of Lead/Follow, connection, timing and footwork of the 7 basic WCS patterns.    You will want to work on more  pattern variations, developing a stronger understanding of connection, rhythm and partnering and technique.

Challenging Level 3:  Expanding your dance.  Has experience in leading/following different patterns. When the class moves along you should be able to understand the concepts presented. You will learn new patterns and how to perfect your technique and how to bring ‘conversation’ into the dance.  You should be practicing flow and continuity in your dancing.  Learning multiple styles of dance will elevate your dancing more quickly.
