The founders of NVCWDA wanted to provide a demonstration dance team to portray country-western dancing and they formed a dance team soon after NVCWDA was established in 1986. Originally called the Country Steppers, the team and its format have evolved over the years. Today’s demonstation team features both line dancers and couples dancers.
The dance team takes country-western dance into the community by demonstrating aspects of country-western dance and by teaching the dance basics. Team members enjoy working together to improve their dancing skills and involving others in this enjoyable, challenging hobby.
Performances usually are scheduled for weekends. Performances can include public events such as county fairs, Christmas on the Ellipse, nursing homes, schools, charity events, private parties, civic associations, and commercial gatherings.
We will provide our own music and amplifier system if necessary. The group prefers to dance on wood or tile floors, but may be able to accommodate other surfaces. To best demonstrate country-western dance, we need sufficient space to hold up to approximately 20 dancers, at least 20 ft by 20 ft. If you have unique space or floor limitations (grass, concrete, blacktop, etc), please let us know when you schedule a performance and we will plan accordingly.
Schedule a Performance
Once we start performing after the pandemic is resolved, you can contact the Dance Team at email@example.com.
Give your name, organization, phone number, and requested date/time for your performance, and the Team Coordinator will contact you to make arrangements. Since the dance teams are part of NVCWDA, a nonprofit Association, we do not require a fee for our performances. However, donations to NVCWDA are appreciated.
Want to be a Dance Team Member?
Dance Team members should have a general understanding of the basics of country-western dance steps. We hope that team members are familiar with the fundamentals of line dancing and pattern dancing. The specific routines can be learned during practice or by watching videos. The team practices during NVCWDA dances and at line dance classes. Few formal practices are needed. Anyone wishing to join the team should send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
