Calling Blog

Here you’ll find regular updates on my travels, and my professional life as a dance caller. Feel free to post questions or comments, and I’ll do my best to respond in a timely fashion. My goal is to make this an interactive space for thoughtful commentary about contra and square dance. Enjoy!
