Country western music is written in a wide variety of rhythms. While our signature dance is two-step, our dances include familiar dances from ballroom and swing. In competition, our couples dance 8 dances: polka, triple two, nightclub, cha-cha, waltz, two step, east coast swing and west coast swing. The choreography chosen for our line dance competition is based on those same rhythms.
There is a place for both social dancers and competitors in the UCWDC family and our events provide educational, social and competitive opportunities. Our rules and judge certification process assure a consistent and fair competition platform for those who want a competitive environment. Pro-am, couples, line dance and team divisions are part of our competitive format. Our top dancers are highly trained, dedicated athletes. The UCWDC is a member of the International Dancesport Federation and efforts are underway to make country western dancing an Olympic sport.
