Please go ahead and register now if you plan to be a competitor in a UCWDC division. If you are not competing but are a spectator or just taking workshops, you do not need to be a member. By providing your groups' 3-Digit code, individuals will be able to call 866-846-7573 (toll free) between the hours of 7:00am - 11:00pm EST. Guests can also log on to to make reservations.

This NEXT Atlanta Country Nights at Brimstone Tavern in Alpharetta will be Friday night, March 1st. Always on the FIRST FRIDAY of every month. 

This is a COUPLE'S dance only (no line dancing). There will be tons of two step dancing most of the night, back-to-back two step songs so you'll get plenty. Plus, east & west coast swing, cha-cha, night club & waltz and plenty of ballads for slow dancing. Keep in mind you do NOT have to be a couple as dancers in Atlanta love dancing with others, so there will be plenty of people to dance with. The songs played is a ton of 90's country dance hits with hits into the 2000s like Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Lainey Haines and more. 

And the SPECIAL thing about this dance, unlike any other, you can have DINNER before or during the dance as the room has waitress service. Order dinner and drinks for you or you and a date or party. There will be candle Lites on all tables for a more romantic mood setting. So, a great dance to bring a date. 

The dance will start at 7:30 and run till 11:30pm.
Wray Sisk will be the guest instructor, teaching the two step from 7:15 to 8. 

As always, you can get advance tickets for just $10 by going to the link below or $12 in cash or thru website at the door.
