We are country western couples dancers in the UCWDC Showcase
Diamond division. We are from New Jersey-we like to say Western
New Jersey. We dance at the UCWDC events in the East
coast area and have been to The Big Apple, Easterns, Baltimore,
Northeastern, New Orleans, Harrisburg, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Worlds competitions.
We usually dance at least 5 and sometimes 6 of the dances offered
at all competitions, which are Polka, Cha Cha, 2-Step, Waltz,
East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing- and now Night Club Two
Step and Norfolk (Triple two) have been added. See several dance photos.
Showcase dancing is a professional style, choreographed to
pre-released music, which shows musical and lyrical interpretation.
It includes more theatrical arts and ballet type moves than are
allowed in the Classic divisions, which are social style orientated.
Note that by style, we are talking about the type of choreography
and movement. In other words, it is which moves are done, not
how, that seperates Showcase from Classic. Diamond Showcase is the over 40 division.

We teach country western dancing at the Colorado
Cafe in Watchung, NJ. The Colorado Cafe has a very large
floor-about 4000 sq. feet, a restaurant, and has large screen
TV's set up so you can watch your favorite videos if you don't
want to dance! It is the best country western dance club in the
Northeast, and is one of the few still doing well.
We also teach various adult education classes in the Flemington
and Watchung areas, parties, workshops, etc.
