Our Conference Planning Committee Members and Board of Directors will be there to greet you. The casual event will provide the perfect setting for networking, casual conversations, or team collaboration in preparation for the exciting competition ahead.

  • 7:00pm-8:30pm: Country and Western Lip Sync & Line Dance Competition: Get ready for a showdown like no other! Pre-formed teams, captained by industry members, will take the stage in a Country and Western Lip Sync & Line Dance Competition. Teams, composed of Industry, NSWOCs, SWANs, and other healthcare professionals, will showcase their creativity and originality, incorporating crowd engagement elements into their performances. With judges offering insights and scores, the audience will also have their say with a People’s Choice Award on the Conference app.

  • 8:30pm-9:00pm - Learn to Line Dance: Cap off the night by learning to line dance led by an expert dance instructor to some favorite Country and Western hits. The entire audience will come together, following the steps and rhythms, creating a fun and dynamic atmosphere and camaraderie! . It's the perfect way to conclude an evening, meet new colleagues and share experiences.

How it works:

Each team is captained by an Industry Member and joined by participants attending the conference. 

  • Industry teams must submit a country and western song before the National Conference.

  • Ideally, we aim for 6-8 teams with a max of 25 members each.

  • When a participant joins a team, NSWOCC shares their contact info with the Industry Member captain. That captain will contact the new participant to welcome them to the team.

  • Team members, along with the captain, coordinate their performance.

Rules & Judging Criteria:

  1. Each team must lip-sync to a country and western song

  2. Each team must incorporate at least one element that engages the crowd

  3. Judging Criteria:

  4. Creativity of the costumes and props

  5. Lip syncing accuracy

  6. Originality of the choreography

  7. Participation from all team members

  8. Overall quality of the performance


There will be a first, second, third place finish and People Choice Award.

So dust off your cowboy boots, grab your hat, and join us for a night of music, laughter, and down-home fun at the NSWOCC Country and Western Sing, Stomp, and Honky-Tonk! Trust us, this is one event you won't want to miss. Yeehaw!
