Country Classic

Colorado's Longest-Running Country/Western Dance Competition
- Since 1991 -

A Fully Sanctioned UCWDC® Country Dance World Championships qualifying event

 – Event Overview –

This year, we’re excited to bring you the Colorado Country Classic for a one-day event on Saturday, 24 June 2023. This is a qualifying event for all UCWDC® divisions. Dance fees are dramatically reduced in order to help dancers in need of an inexpensive qualifying event. We have preliminary plans to host CTST competitions. Unfortunately this year, we are not able to provide ballroom nor WSDC® competitions.

Can I take video of the competition?

You absolutely can and you don’t need a video pass.

How do I compete at the event?

In order to compete in country divisions you must (1) purchase a “One-Day Event Pass” (this is not the spectator pass) and (2) be an associate member of the UCWDC®. If you are not currently a member, you will need to join before you compete.


Will there be food at the event?

We plan to invite some food trucks that will be in the parking lot. You can bring food into the Stampede, but not drinks. The Stampede’s bar will be open during our event. If you’d like to have a sit-down meal, the Olive Garden Italian Restaurant is just next door!

This one-day event will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2023 from 8am-6pm. Details will be released as soon as we have more information. If you have questions, please call or text Kay Bryan at 719-310-3501 or email her at kay@coloradocountryclassic.net.


Events are only successful due to the time donated by volunteers. The Colorado Country Classic would not happen without your help. As little as two hours can make a GREAT difference. Please consider using some of your time to make this year’s event that much more successful, exciting and memorable. We look forward to having you on our team!

To volunteer at the event, please contact Tasha Sumpter at (719) 265-8000.


I don’t dance. Can I come and watch?

We expect many spectators who just want to come and watch. You can buy a one-day spectator pass online or at the door. After 22 May, the price goes up, so it’s best to buy early. Children under 17 are free. Just go to the registration page and look for Colorado Country Classic.


Who is dancing in the event?

Here’s the list of dancers currently scheduled to dance. Check back often, because it can change daily.
