 Students at this level must demonstrate a sound foundation in footwork, timing, lead & follow techniques, musicality, and dance terminology in at least the six main dances.   Students should have 1-2 years of formal dance training, and dance socially on a regular basis.   This level of classes will be more intensive.  The figures will be more complex and challenging. Knowledge of the more popular dances is essential.

Previous experience line dancing is helpful but not required. 
Jump in and have fun.  Mess up?  laugh it off and keep going.
