Tracy & Pam began their Country dance journey in the 1980’s, several years before the founding of the UCWDC. They are likely remembered as members of the Country dance team, Sizzlin’ Country.
As the UCWDC gained influence in the USA and around the world, Tracy served as Chair of the UCWDC Business Committee and grew relationships throughout the circuit. He was elected UCWDC Treasurer for eight consecutive years. As Treasurer, he established banking relationships, implemented financial policies and procedures, and introduced electronic payment methods for both domestic and international competitors. He also created an reserve fund with strict limits for use of those funds.
Pam made an early impression on the Country dance genre designing and creating dance costumes. Her Kountry Klassics Designs Company sponsored workshops and intensives for dancers that brought top Instructors and choreographers to her local region. As one of the first “Floor Moms,” she offered support to both competitors and event organizers by efficiently moving dancers on and off the floor. For many years, now, she’s brought the same efficiency and organization to the registration process at numerous UCWDC and ACDA events. She is the South Central Regional Representative for the UCWDC.
Together, Tracy and Pam are co-directors of the Dallas Dance Festival and the Las Vegas Dance Finale. Prior to their induction in the Hall of Fame, they received a Pioneer Award for their contributions to UCWDC’s early history.
