I don't think that the original request for an objective set of tests
has ever been answered except for one delightful tongue-in-cheek reply.<

I seem to remember that the Boston Branch had a written set of items that=

indicated what level a dancer is at. One of our teachers in the San
Francisco class brought it back with her. As I recall, there were lists
for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each listed figures that a
dancer should be competent dancing before being sent to the next level of=

class. Perhaps someone in the Boston Branch could comment?

On the subject of walk-throughs. A class I used to attend regularly had
suffered by being taught to the "lowest common denominator". I was amaze=
d
when a guest teacher came to our class and taught to a class that had bee=
n
described as an intermediate social class. The entire level of the class=

rose to the level he was teaching to, it was an absolutely amazing
transformation.

Just my 2 cents' worth.
