** Montreal IAGLCWDC Convention - July 2-5 **
No matter what your skill level, we have a dance competition category just for you. Whether you're an individual line dancer, a couples dancer, or a dance team, the competition offers categories for everyone and at all levels, from beginners to the more experienced.
Team categories are Line, Couple, and Open Routines.
Couples categories are Open, Pro-Am, and "Just Dance".
Line Dance categories are Open, "Just Dance" and something brand new: "Pick Your Own".
According to Lee Fox, our Competition Director, here's how "Pick Your Own" works:
This is where the competitors get to pick the line dance they want to compete in against others who also pick their line dance. It will be like a showcase where the competitor has the floor to him/herself to dance 4 repetitions of their line dance with no restrictions with vanilla patterns, attire, or music selection. You may use the music the line dance was choreographed for or choose another song.
Paper and online entry forms are here.
Tyler Goolsby Scholarship Applications
Thanks to many generous donations, the IAGLCWDC is pleased to announce that Tyler Goolsby Scholarship Applications for the Montreal Hoedown in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, July 2-5, 2015, are now being accepted.
Due to technical delays in setting up our website to accept both USD and CAD currencies, it became necessary to delay accepting scholarships as well. Therefore, we have pushed back the deadline to submit applications to April 30, 2015. Ergo, if you or someone you know might be interested in applying for the scholarship, now is the time to start the process.
Please forward this message to anyone you know who might be interested but might not be on our mailing list!

Reserve your room now in order to make your travel plans. If you haven't already pre-registered, you will be able to do so soon when regular online registration opens.
Also, please prefer this hotel over any other one: in order to benefit from good rates for the ball rooms at the Sheraton, we need to have as many bookings as possible. Also, it is much more fun if everyone stays at one place, the Convention is fun day and night!
