Courses by Level

Learn according to your dance level

Few dancers fit into a box perfectly.

It’s easy to be level 2 with partner charleston moves, but level 4 with triple step figures. Some people perfectly understand musicality, but can’t execute a level 1 movement. It doesn’t matter what level video you are watching as long as you are being challenged. These are just guidelines to help you progress. The Core Technique videos will be critical for all dancers. Expect to view them and practice them over and over as you gain deeper levels of understanding and control.

Dance level is relative. The most important thing is to find videos that motivate you to keep learning. Rather than focus on what ‘level’ you are, just start watching and practicing with the videos that cover topics you want to learn. If a level 5 video is what you want, do it. If it feels impossible, review core technique videos and lower level videos to help you out. You have the freedom and responsibility to keep your learning fun.

    You are experienced and in need of a challenge. We know many people will jump straight to this level regardless of their experience. We understand that and just hope you will then build more awareness of your actual level and revisit the lower level material. When Jo and Kevin struggle with a difficult moves, they know the issue almost always lies in some fundamental technique they don’t have total control of. So go back to the basics and rebuild. Use this level as motivation and a reality check for your skills.
