You should feel confident dancing on the social floor, and changing between patterns is not a problem for you. This level is suitable for those who have taken at least one or more intermediate courses (fortsättningskurs).

Level 4
This is a level for those who have been dancing for a longer time.
You should have danced WCS for at least 3 years, have points in the Novice division according to WSDC ranking, or have equivalent knowledge in case you don’t compete.

Level 5
This level is for the most experienced dancers who want to be challenged.
You should compete in the Intermediate division according to WSDC ranking to take this level. In case you don’t compete, you can enter this level through auditions.
