Melissa Pack



Melissa Pack took her first clogging lesson from her best friend Christina Nobili 18 years ago in Virginia where she’s from. Since that very first lesson, Melissa has gone on to make clogging one of the biggest features in her life. She moved from Virginia to Nashville, Tennessee after graduating from Virginia Tech in 2001 to pursue bigger dancing dreams. A few years later she finally discovered the clogging team she was hoping to find, Rhythm-n-Motion out of Cookeville, Tennessee. She has been dancing with the 10 time world champion clogging team going on 11 years now. She also was fortunate enough to meet her husband, Rob, through this team as well.  She has had the opportunity to dance for entertainers such as Johnny & June Cash, Ralph Stanley, Dan Tymanski, John Cowan and the list goes on. She and her team have made multiple appearances on the Grand Ole Opry. The best Opry performance was when she shared the stage with her best friend, Christina and her husband, Rob.

Melissa also runs her own clogging team in Lebanon, TN called the Evermean Evergreen Cloggers. She currently has 61 dancers ages 4-72. She has a competition team of 12 kids that she travels throughout the South East on the ACHF circuit with. The unique team name is very special to Melissa and her family because it was the name of the team her husband and his family started clogging with back in 1985. The EE’s performed and competed until the year 2000 under the direction of Johnnie Payton. In 2010, Johnnie asked Melissa if she wanted to take on the team name since Melissa currently had a lot of dancers but no team name.  She graciously took the team name and is keeping the Evermean tradition alive.

Melissa and her husband are both members of the ACHF All-American Team. They spend lots of time traveling with both teams (EE’s & RNM) competing and doing shows as well as going to various workshops throughout the year as instructors.
