About Country Steps Cloggers
Clogging is a type of folk dance in which the dancer's shoes, by striking the heel, toe, or both on the floor create a percussive rhythm. The dances are energetic and are choreographed to country, bluegrass, and pop music. Typically, clogging shoes are made of leather with double taps on the toes and heels.
Our Director, Pam Bachmann, began clogging in Cleves, Ohio, a tiny village outside the Cincinnati, Ohio city limits and just east of Indiana. Pam starting clogging with Don and Rita Gross and The Queen City Cloggers. Because it is a tiny village, clogging was a diversion from "there's nothing to do." When Don and Rita retired, they sold the business to Pam's mom and dad and a new group was formed, Country Steps Cloggers.
Pam has been dancing most of her life. She danced on a precision square dance competition team for three years. Pam and her sister Amy taught at National Square Dancing Conventions around the country. In 1988, Pam began directing the new group, Country Steps Cloggers.
