Two Step Volume 1, Bronze
The Official & Complete Two Step Bronze Syllabus
Length: 2 hours , Patterns: 45 plus, Instructors: Joe & Sarah
This is a great video. It starts with the basic step, it builds in a logical fashion, it covers all of the most popular and most important figures, and it's a great bargain: 2 full hours with more than 45 patterns. This is the only video on the market that shows the complete set of essential two step syllabus figures. This video is fully suitable for the complete beginner, but it goes on to show all 45 syllabus figures, including all of the most popular intermediate figures of two step. We show several ways to start the figures and we show several endings for the figures. There are no awkward figures or figures that are not universally recognized as standard "lead and follow" figures. The development of an instructional video for the bronze syllabus was a special project of The Dance Store. This is the only instructional video on the market for this syllabus and The Dance Store is the exclusive source for the video.
This video is a radical change from all previous two step video offerings: 1.Most if not all two step videos use the same approach: they go directly into teaching long "amalgamations." The student never learns the building blocks and the basic elements. These amalgamations almost always contain an element that is awkward or difficult to lead or difficult to follow. The bronze syllabus is different: it shows figures individually and it shows the easiest ways to initiate these figures and it shows the easiest ways to transition out of them. It goes on to show a "toolbox" of "connector figures" that solve almost all transition issues you might ever face. With most of these figures, we begin in closed position and we show how to get back to closed as one of the ending options. With a standard tempo of 180-200 beats per minute, two step is a fast dance that cannot accept awkward choreography, especially for social dancing.
This video serves beginners, prospective competitors, and instructors in an outstanding way. For beginners, it starts with the basic, it builds slowly through basic changes of direction, and it goes on to show, in logical order, all of the necessary and quintessential steps of two step. In addition, it shows everything in manageable and achievable small chunks. For the social dancer, this video shows all of the most important "lead and follow" figures of two step. For the prospective competitor, it shows how to do these figures correctly and it shows easy ways to link them together. In addition, all of these moves are "legal" for any level of competition. For some levels of competition, the figures shown in this video are the only allowable figures. For teachers, this video shows a very logical course progression. This video is fully suitable for serving as a course guide.
All figures are properly labeled, indexed, and sequenced. The instructors (Joe and Sarah) are former competitors in country-western dancing.
This video covers more than just the steps. The video begins with an introduction to the two step that includes a demonstration. Next, frame, connection, timing, and music tempo and structure are discussed. After these figures, the video shows all of the "connector" moves needed to move between all partner positions.
