CLASSIC LINE DANCES

Latest Update 23 Aug,  2014

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.


Date of Use is posted next to the new dances.

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.

SHOWCASE MUSIC DOWNLOADS

MUSIC DOWNLOADER’S LEGAL OBLIGATION AND INDEMNIFICATION OF THE UCWDC®

All recorded music is protected by US and other patent and copyright laws. It is unfair and illegal to copy or use music for which the authors have not been compensated for their intellectual property.
UCWDC Showcase, Masters, SuperStars, Crown and RisingStars Division competition dance routines are required to be choreographed to specific songs or music medleys. In order to enhance the duration, showmanship and musicality of those competition dance performances, Special Cut competition music was created by the United Country Western Dance Council Music Committee. All of the music used in the creation of the Special Cut competition music was assembled and edited by the committee from legally obtained sources.

Before downloading and opening the file and using this Special Cut track of music for the creation of dance choreography, practice, competition, or any other purpose, the downloader must expressly agree that he or she understands his or her obligation under US and other patent and copyright laws to first legally obtain and purchase, from any music track provider of their choice, the original track(s) or CD(s) that were used in the creation of the Special Cut needed for dance competition.

By downloading this Special Cut, the downloader stipulates to the United Country Western Dance Council®, with intent to be legally bound, that he or she is already the owner of a legally obtained copy of all of the original source music used in its creation and further indemnifies the UCWDC against all blame and responsibility for any failure on the part of the downloader to obtain and use legally purchased music.

If the downloader prefers to edit and cut his or her own practice music from his or her personal copy of the original track(s), the UCWDC will gladly provide a compilation of the edits and cuts the dancer needs to make the tune usable as a Showcase competition number.
