CLASSIC LINE DANCES

Latest Update 11 Feb. 2017


Welcome to another year of competition!

For qualification criteria for each division please refer to the official UCWDC rules.

About the Step Sheets:

• The step descriptions are downloadable in Acrobat (pdf) format.

• For clarification, the direction of a step, weight change or the direction a dancer faces may be defined by points of the clock.

• Forward shall be denoted as 12:00; Right shall be denoted as 3:00; Back shall be denoted as 6:00; and Left shall be denoted as 9:00.

• Diagonal directions of travel shall be denoted around the clock as 1:30, 4:30, 7:30, and 10:30, respectively.

• The amount of rotation for pivots and turns is determined from the amount of change in clock direction and refers to the rotation of the dancer's footwork, but does not necessarily indicate the amount of body rotation, or the body's "facing" contra or open alignment while stepping.

• Used in conjunction with the step sheets, the videos are designed to aid in the learning of the vanilla patterns for the dances. If there is a discrepancy between the dance script and the video, please contact Brigitte Zerah.

• Several of the video files are large and may take a minute or two to load, please be patient. You may be better off right-clicking and saving it locally to view.


Usage dates for new dances are listed in the table below. For all dances and Showcase songs, there is a 15-day "window" before or after the date where Event Directors may choose to use either the "old" or "new (next)" released dance or song. Please contact the Event Director for specific titles to be used at their event.

If you have comments or suggestions for future dances, please contact me.Thanks, and have a great competitive year!
