Austin City Dance Club invites you to join our DanceStrong program, modeled after a karate studio’s Black Belt program. Each DanceStrong wristband signifies a level of achievement built from ACDC’s extensive, curriculum-based instruction. Participants in the program start out with a white wristband and earn (by participation & demonstration of achievement with testing during our graduation programs) the next color wristband.
█ Glowing Green: Level 1 graduate, just beginning comprehension of basics
█ Teal: Level 1.5 graduate
█ Sky Blue: Level 2 graduate
█ Royal Blue: Level 3 graduate
█ Navy Blue: Level 4 after 1 year
█ Maroon: Teacher assistant
█ Black: Instructor; champion/professional stature, with extensive national presence including competition, judging, teaching and event coordination
█ Red: in conjunction with levels royal blue and above, designating an ACDC practice assistant
Testing costs each participant nothing, and testers will be quizzed on the curriculum and required to demonstrate “open” material including dancing each part, in some cases with the instructors, to music.
