I dance Advanced or Challenge. So, obviously I can dance DBD.

Well, you most likely have the right attitude for doing DBD. But, it’ll probably still take some practice. As we said, DBD isn’t another level. DBD is more of a thought process, while the higher levels can be simply another list of calls. Dancing at a higher level doesn’t generally give a lot of practice for the levels below and the "interesting" choreography is generally reserved for the higher level moves. The lower level moves are used simply to set up the formation.

That said, you may have some advantages. You may recognize something as one of the higher level moves, called directionally. You may also recognize, understand, and have experience with some of the concepts that the caller might use.

Being Advanced or Challenge dancers, you should be familiar with the notion of "square dancing concepts". DBD is something of a concept itself as it involves applying calls in new ways.
