There are five levels of competition in Australia - Level 1 (lowest) through Level 5 (Opens).
It's unfortunate. I like to think we're stronger than just-above-beginners, and we usually are close to the top of competitions, but going through three partners in two years has slowed my progression through the levels a bit.
Thanks for the kind comments We saw so much wrong with our dancing thanks to that video, we're now working frantically to fix all the problems before the start of the comp season.
There were a few collisions that I saw though, that can't've been fun.
After level 1 we're not on a restricted sylabus any longer. A Level 2 couple could, if they wanted to, do the same figures that a opens champion does. Which is probably why level two looks "more advanced".
