    Would the EC Swing pattern commonly known as "Sliding Doors" be considered a bronze pattern in USA Dance comps? It's great fun!

    I was always under the assumption that they were Silver, but I could be wrong.

    I would guess not (but I could be wrong), as it seems like when you slide from one side to the other you end up in a side-by-side position. Side-by-side work is not allowed in Bronze East Coast Swing.

    It's bronze when done as written (i.e. use rock-steps, not a kick-ball-change). There is no side-by-side position because dancers maintain hand-to-hand contact during the rocks, so they are in a left-side or a right-side position, as in a cha cha crossover break.

    Thanks all. I'm taking this as a green light for bronze!
