Does anyone know what steps in the book Bronze, silver, and gold medallists are allowed to do?

In competitions I've been in, Bronze has usually been the first 8. From which book, I don't know.

Also, is there an online copy of the names of the steps. We want to start to put together a Waltz and quickstep routine for next year, as well as some latin.

From what I've read on DF, our bronze is equivalent to your pre-bronze.

In Melbourne the only competition that really cares about specific syllabus steps is Crown, and even then it's only for bronze...

Ah i stand corrected. "Competitors in the following events are not permitted to use figures other than those
defined in the "Restricted Syllabus" as set and published by DSA:
a) Novice events." Roll Eyes got myself all confused, i think i had a blonde moment Tongue

Its one thing having a rule, its another whether it is applied.  Maybe you were right the first time..

I'd rather run on the safe side than get disqualified.

You wouldn't get disqualified the first use, generally what happens is if a judge does disqualify you then you are called up to the front area and told that your routine has steps in it that are not in the syllabus, so you get a warning first off.

yes you must get warned. but then your coach should know the syllabus and not put those steps in the routine. When we started our coach checked the book and worked out a routine from that.
