Personal Certification

It is standard within the Ballroom dance industry to use a progressive method modeled after the Olympic medal system of 'Bronze', 'Silver' and 'Gold'. These have little to do with actual levels of expertise, and more to do with 'styles' of dance. DanceKinesis prefers to use the terms; 'Social (Bronze)', 'Ballroom (Silver)', and 'Exhibition (Gold)' to better correlate to the styles of dance in the U.S.
