Disco, Freestyle & Rock 'n' Roll

The aims of the Faculty are to create a sound and safe technique for Disco, Freestyle & Rock 'n' Roll and Country Western Dance while understanding the need to allow freedom of expression and musical interpretation and to educate teachers that dance within this Faculty is an ever-changing art form. Modern music, trends, and different cultures will always give us new challenges and material to introduce to our dancers.

Please note: formation team routines should follow the same path as solo medal levels, e.g. set, pre-bronze, bronze, silver, gold, stars etc. 

Gold Star 1, 2 & 3 Rock and Roll Examinations
Teachers are reminded that when entering candidates for Gold Stars 1, 2 and 3 in Rock and Roll examinations, they must show the compulsory figures within the first 16 bars of their routine. The figures can be danced in any order, as a reminder, these are:
