Fun and Friendship are the essentials of Square Dancing, without which square dancing just isn't the
same. The aim of my "New Dancers" Dance is to get them dancing and having a good time. My goal is
dancers success. I am patient and willing to walk people through new calls and help them as much as
possible. I want the dancers to enjoy their dancing experience. If they are having a good time, then
it is a pleasure for me to call for them. Square dancers are the back bone of our activity, without
which square dance callers would not exist.
I enjoy calling for all types of dancers from the least experienced dancers through those who have
danced so many years that they are beginning to forget the calls. I truly enjoy calling and hope
that everybody enjoys my calling for them.
Most of my best friends are my square dance family and other callers.
New square dancers are just friends that I just haven't met.
