Rock 'n' ROLL

A 1959 dance book describes Rock n’ Roll as performed without undue tension, the body and legs being flexible so that there may be a physical rhythmic expression of co-ordination with the beats of music. A dance that leaves much scope for personal expression and interpretation in style, movement, rhythm, and even in the manner in which the figures are constructed. Requires a level of dedication and understanding in order to sucessfull execute routines with good technique and style.

Student Dress Code

While we are not entirely strict when it comes to appearances in training, there are a few guidelines that should be followed when choosing what to wear when attending classes and private lessons.

Medal Test Syllabus

Rock ‘n’ Roll is one of very few genres that can be completed independently of the full SADTA Freestyle Medal Test syllabus.
