American Syllabus Information
Latin American
Ballroom / Standard / Modern
 
Did You Know that if you clicked on a step
that is Red and underlined then an animation
will teach you the figure of that step!
 
Some steps have 3Dimension Versions, Cool!!!
 
Due to the many different studios and centres of learning it has been decided at BallroomDancing.co.za to Generalise the syllabus list and break the steps up into what you should be learning to be keeping in pace with the world. Please note that just because a dance or step is in a level it does not mean that the step or dance is compulsory for that level. The best thing to do is use this guide to assist you but dance according to the syllabus figure sheet provided by your teacher. Before Reading Further read the DISCLAIMER.
