Are you "experienced" enough to be comfortable at an "Advanced Dance"? Here's a general criteria: An experienced dancer is adept enough to require little or no walkthrough of intermediate or advanced dances.
Caller Lisa Greenleaf puts it this way:
- An experienced dancer knows how to do a roll away, California twirl, pass through to a wave, and the basic moves without being taught
- An experienced dancer knows where to be at the start of each dance phrase and how to recover from a lapse
- An experienced dancer assists his or her partner and neighbor to the next move
- An experienced dancers executes flourishes safely and on time without disturbing others
