The IAGLCWDC championship competitions are coming up fast.  Now’s a good time to start thinking about entering the Just Dance competitions.  You may find a partner to enter the Just Dance Couples Category on site or just show up to the competition and see who else wants to compete but doesn’t have a partner yet.  For the Just Dance Line Dances, just show up.  For your convenience, here are the competitions and categories with a brief description of each one.  You may get more details by visiting IAGLCWDC.org to see the rules and regulations.

This year the entry fee for all Just Dance and Pat & Chris categories are $5 per person per dance.  The top three winners in each dance will win cash $$$$$ prizes.  Thank you so much for your support.  Let’s see if we can make the 26th anniversary of the International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country Western Dance Clubs a spectacular event with a fabulous competition in Seattle.

  • Pat & Chris Category — Dances offered are Two-Step and West Coast Swing.  Come onto the floor as a leader or a follower.  Partners are rotated by the MC, so you don’t know who your partner will be.  Top three places in each dance — no overall award.
  • Showdance Category — Couples compete their own solo choreographed routine to the music of their choice with costuming of their choice.  All solo routines are judged against each other.  May choose to use one dance or a medley of more than one dance and must be kept within two and a half minutes.  Top three places — no overall award.
