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.
