Question: Who should compete?
Answer: Anybody who wants to!
If you have somebody you regularly dance with socially, but neither of you have competed before, Social Starter is the division for you. There are no costume rules and no dance rules – just go dance for fun!
If you are a line dancer, you have two options. You can ask your local line dance teacher to get out there with you. These are divisions called ProAm Line dance where you dance to line dances you and your instructor choose. Dance to whatever is popular in your area! And you, your friends and your instructor can all compete together. For more information on ProAm Line Dance, see this great Article by Donna Caudill. In Line Dance you can also dance to the UCWDC® dances at the Newcomer, Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced levels. In Newcomer there are three published dances they are posted at the UCWDC® Website – www.ucwdc.org.
If you have a regular instructor, you can enter ProAm with your instructor. There are Pre-Newcomer divisions for people who are truly new dancers. If you’ve been dancing a while but haven’t competed before, you may want to start in Newcomer. You and your instructor would make that decision together.
