Silver is a World dance standard with a high degree of styling. Flashy movements make this standard stand out on the dance floor. Sequence of movements makes singles/couples glide around the dance floor, with many changes in direction. Styling makes this standard develop an individual character - some people become Ballroom Dancers while others become Latin Dancers. Technique is very important to develop continuous movements or dance routine. This standard is the beginning of the showy and flashy dancing to be used mainly on the ballroom floor. A Silver dancer is definitely noticed on a crowded floor.

Gold Star Open
Gold Star Open level is the highest level that the syllabus goes to. Dancers at this level have even a better balance and perform even more difficult patterns than silver level dancers. At this level, it becomes obvious whether the dancer has established a good foundation in their dancing or not, because otherwise they will not be able to perform many of the steps at all, let alone well.
“Open” in a Ballroom, Latin – American Pro; Pro-Am; Am-Am dance competition means that the performed steps do not have to be adhered to any syllabus. Choreographers for these events are able to either modify syllabus patterns or make up of their own. Dancers who do open level choreography should have a firm grasp of all of the syllabus requirements. This comprises a lot of creativity and a lot of fun. Gold Star Dancers should be physically fit because even short dances can be physically demanding. Dancers should train continuously to maintain and to improve their technique, balance skills, strength and flexibility. Competitive dancing is typically a year-round activity: dancers attend amazing dance classes during competition season, to refine their competitive routines, and during off-season to prepare for the next upcoming competition season.
By starting at the newcomer dancing level and moving up through to the gold one, a dancer gets great skills and foundation in technique, balance and partnering skills.
