Line Dance Level Breakdown
This list of dance terms per level was put together by the NTA members to
use as a basic guideline for dancers and teachers and
choreographers. It should be a big help for choreographers in assigning levels for their dances. It is important that a natural
progression take place.
This is a guideline only. All dancers, teachers and classes are
different, and what’s intermediate for one group may be advanced for
another. As with anything you learn…you need the basic information before you can move forward with more intricate details.
The terms listed are, by no means, every dance term available. The list
includes some of the more common terms used in line
dancing. Once you see the categories, you will have a better idea of where other terms would fit as well. Basic dance sheets should
include just the fundamental patterns and should not be more than 48 or 64 counts.
