The Country Steppers

Steppers

The Country Steppers were the official demonstration dance team of NVCWDA until 2016.

In 2016, the Steppers disbanded, and NVCWDA revamped its dance team to include a line dance component and a couples dance component.

We present here some fond memories of the Country Steppers...

The Steppers took country-western dance into the community by demonstrating all aspects of traditional country-western dance and by teaching the dance basics. The Team consisted of approximately 20 members of the NVCWDA. The Steppers considered themselves a "Dance Family" that enjoyed working together to improve their dancing skills and involving others in this enjoyable, challenging hobby. The group danced on almost any surface, from grass to concrete to blacktop. Yes, they even got the occasional chance to dance on tile or wood floors!

Some photos of the Country Steppers at the NVCWDA 2012 benefit dance for Fisher House are posted on Facebook.

You also can view some more photos of a few of their performances here.

Performances included public events such as county fairs, the Ellipse at the White House and at the National Christmas Tree, nursing homes, schools, charity events, private parties, civic associations, and commercial gatherings. The Steppers were featured entertainers twice on the Nashville Network's Club Dance TV show during the 1990s and also have appeared on Communicating Today with John Monsul on Fairfax Public Access TV, in November 2011 and also in February 2009. They performed on the show again in June 2013.
