What Is LineDanceSport?
It's ballroom dancing, solo, in groups.
It's line dancing, using the standard ballroom techniques and styling.
It's social dancing with a group, where we all perform the same choreography together.
It's a ton of fun, for everyone, from beginners to world class dancers!
LineDanceSport is a new, innovative syllabus-based program for dance athletes. Incorporating established dance styles and techniques with adjustments for the unique properties of line dancing, LineDanceSport fits somewhere between ballroom dancing and line dancing. Dancers perform solo (without a partner), as in line dancing, but the rhythms, steps, and techniques are similar to those used in the standard ballroom dance syllabuses (Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Cha Cha, etc.)
The Bronze Level is separated into two parts; Level 1 and Level 2, and covers Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, International Rumba, Mambo, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Merengue, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Nightclub, and Hustle. The Bronze Syllabus contains 260 step patterns (152 in Level 1 and 108 in Level 2).
Silver And Gold
The Silver syllabus and Gold syllabus maintain that format. Silver is also in two levels with 169 step patterns (98 in Level 1 and 71 in Level 2). Silver adds three more rhythms (Viennese Waltz, Bolero, and Paso Doble) and eliminates three (Merengue, Nightclub, and Hustle). The Gold Syllabus is in development, but will contain up to 10 patterns per rhythm. By the time an athlete completes the Gold level, they will be a world class dancer.
