Explanation of Line Dance Levels:
Level 1 (Ultra Beginner): Absolutely no previous dance experience is required. Basic line steps are taught and are choreographed to different music moderately paced to a strong 4/4 or 3/4 beat. Some of the dances later in the hour include one wall change of either a ¼ or ½ turn. Also, basic line dance terminology and etiquette is taught.
Level 2 (Upper Beginner): Choreography will be suitable for dancers who have completed level 1 or have had some previous line dance experience. Routines will include additional rhythms such as waltz and cha-cha and the musical tempo will range from slow to moderate. Generally, the dances will include 32 to 48 counts, will incorporate some styling principles and use one or more turns.
Level 3 (Upper Improver): This level assumes previous line dance experience or the satisfactory completion of levels 1 & 2. Additional step patterns are introduced and the choreography will include additional rhythms and tempos. Dance routines at this level use several turns, often have 64 counts, and may also use tags and restarts.
