What knowledge and skills do you expect a bronze, silver, gold, or open dancers to possess? There have been many arguments about the difference between amateur, pro-am, and collegiate competitors and it would be nice to sum it up here. I don't believe there should be a difference in expectations. I believe Bronze=Bronze, Silver=Silver, Gold=Gold, and Open=Open. I do not see the purpose to having an amateur bronze, a collegiate bronze, and a pro-am bronze. So what knowledge (from technique to steps) do you expect a student to know at the 1) bronze level 2) silver level 3) gold level 4) open level I would love to have pro's comment on what they believe the industry's expectaitons are/ ought to be.
