LEVELS OF DANCING
Please keep in mind that the material covered in "level" vary from instructor to instructor or dance school to dance school. Having said that, the main levels of Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia, Kizomba dancing can range from:


Level 101 - Two Left Feet. Absolute / Total Beginner. Brand new student with no or very little knowledge about dancing. If you usually sit and watch at the clubs, wish you could at least the basic step and turn, then this level 101 will be the best for you to get started.

Level 102 - Beginner / Improver. These classes are for students that have at least done at least 1 Level 101 Bootcamp or a series of private lessons. Students that join need to have some understanding (not extensive) in the Basic Step, Basic turn, Basic connections, and Basic Figures of the dance of interest. If you got a taste of dancing and want more, if you wish you would know a few more turns, if you are currently taking group dance lessons then this level is right for you to continue expanding your skills.

Level 201 - Intermediate / Advanced. These classes are for students that have done at least one Level 101 Bootcamps plus a few 102 group classes and or a series of private dance lessons. Students that join need to have a vast knowledge of foundation steps, turns, and variations of the roots of the dance of interest. If you have taken several group dance lessons for a few months, if you have confidence dancing on the dance floor, and if you want to keep on adding new challenges in your dancing, then this level 201 is right for you to continue challenging your skills.
