The Ballroom Dance Medal System

The Medal System is designed for students who want to be well-rounded social ballroom dancers or competitive ballroom dancers. The Medal System is an organized system of syllabus figures used worldwide to keep track of your ballroom dance progress. Syllabus figures, or “school figures,” as they are sometimes called are small patterns of steps that embody the primary elements of ballroom dance. These figures, or patterns, are split into three escalating levels of difficulty designated as “bronze,” “silver” or “gold” levels. This is to enable the student to master each level before moving up to the challenge of the next, more difficult level. Diligent study and practice of these elements at each level will produce a capable, well-rounded social or competitive ballroom dancer.

The Bronze Medal Program is designed for the ballroom dance student who wants to become a Good Social Dancer. A Bronze ballroom dancer is considered to be fun to dance with and a good dancer in all the popular social dance styles. Bronze dancers have a nice dance style and are able to dance with confidence at any dance occasion.

The Silver Medal Program is designed for the ballroom dance student who wishes to become and Advanced Social Dancer. Silver ballroom dancers are set apart by their style and versatility on the dance floor in all dance styles. These dancers are sought after on the dance floor.

The Gold Medal Program is designed for the student who wishes to become an Excellent Ballroom Dancer. Gold Medal ballroom dancers have a complete and thorough knowledge of all the ballroom dance styles giving them complete confidence on the dance floor. Advanced style and poise sets Gold Standard Ballroom Dancers apart from the rest.
