Calling for Contra Dances

"Thank you for the fantastic contra dance calling Saturday night.
You called some new dances - they were fun, challenging and fresh."

I call contra dances regularly across the UK.

I call around the country and beyond, for crowds that range in experience from almost entirely new to seasoned contra dancers.

My favorite contra dances have great flow combined with unexpected transitions between familiar figures; I love diverse formations and I strive for variety in my dance programs. My calling style is upbeat and focused on the belief that fun is success.

See examples of my calling on Youtube.

A student at Oklahoma State University, co-host of the Stillwater contra dance, made this 2012 video about contra dancing that includes some commentary from me.
