SCVSDA General Dances are for all dancers who:

The GDP Dance Level

Dancing fun for everyone.

Popular calls from Basic, Mainstream, and Plus.

Learn in half the time it takes to learn Plus.

If you are currently dancing at a club in this area, you already know all the GDP calls!



Learning the GDP Level

If you already dance Plus, you already know all the calls of the GDP list!

If you already dance Mainstream, you only need to learn these additional calls.
