Classic ProAm and Couples Music
While dancers in Showcase ProAm and Couples divisions perform to music that is pre-released, competitors in the Classic divisions step on the floor not knowing what songs will be played.
Not all Country music is appropriate for use in UCWDC-sanctioned competitions. Classic music rhythms and tempos are described in the rules, and songs for the Classic divisions are typically phrased or edited for phrasing. These are important considerations when the Music Committee and deejays choose competition music. This is why some competition songs differ from the original versions you hear on the radio or other digital platforms.
The following list is representative of songs and artists played in the Classic ProAm and Couples divisions.

UCWDC Showcase, Masters, SuperStars, Crown and Rising Stars 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.
