What does challenging mean?
- You know how to do more than just the basic moves with confidence (Contra Corners, Roll Aways, Cross Trail Thru, Pass the Ocean, etc).
- You know where to be at the start of each dance phrase and how to recover from a lapse.
- You can dance and enjoy no walk through dances.
- You assist your partner and neighbor to the next move—and you have a friendly attitude about it.
- You execute flourishes safely and on time without disturbing others.
** It's not how long you've been dancing, it's how well you can adapt to challenging and unusual choreography**
