    Whoops...that's what I get for trusting a website that looks straight out of the 90's. Thanks Larinda!!!

    Nice...though I can see some ex ballerinas getting accidentally invigillated on that one. ;)

    I had our coach check out the NDCA Bronze videos. Most of the steps we already do! :dancingbanana:

    The new NDCA approved step list is now easily downloadable. Go the the website, click on rules, and download the entire rule book. A the bottom of the rulebook is the new step list complete with updated definitions, restrictions.

    Thank you to the invigilation committee who worked hard to help us take one more step forward.

    Great resources, even for social dancers.

    I have looked at the new syllabus, and training at a franchise myself, I have noticed that many of the 'advanced bronze' steps in our syllabus would be considered silver according to the new syllabus (including steps with continuity style, spirals and swivels). For others who train at franchises and have competed in bronze since the new syllabus has come out--Do you find a difference in what you can do at the bronze level, have some of your steps become silver, and do you find that the new syllabus is enforced?

    It wasn't me on the floor, but a different student got invigilated last summer for a bronze step that is in our syllabus. I get the feeling from that experience and this thread that the enforcement is getting tighter.

    The new syllabus, both bronze and silver is steadily invigilated.

    It is quite easy really.

    At an Arthur Murray event one follows the Arthur Murray syllabus.

    At a Fred Astaire event one follows the Fred Astaire syllabus.

    At an NDCA event one follows the NDCA syllabus.

    That's very useful Larinda! Thank you very much :)

    I was at an NDCA comp in August where things like developes, and spirals weren't invigilated out in bronze, but perhaps it was too soon after the syllabus came out :)

    Our entry blank for Colorado Star Ball has American Paso listed from Newcomer through Gold. We might like to try it, if we can see an example of it. :)

    If it were me, I would just use the int'l style syllabus. Same for samba.

    I'm sorry to ask because the answer seems to be staring me in the face, but I'm hoping I missed something….

    Bronze Walz syllabus only listed a right underarm turn--left underarm turns aren't allowed????

    Thank you!
