International 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 associations 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. For example some samba steps are included in bronze yet samba is a SILVER dance. The reasoning for including them in bronze is that when you get to silver you will be well on your way to learning the others and you will be ahead instead of starting silver with no knowledge of samba. The best thing of learning this way is if you go to a dance and you are a bronze dancer you will be able to get up and at least do some samba.
