Carl Ballou, aka CBDanceman, has been a dance leader for over 25 years. Carl's specialty is taking
a group with little or no dance experience and introducing them to joy of dancing. His programs
(about 2 hours long)consist of fun, easy dances from America's Heritage that everyone can do - with
brief instruction from the floor.
Carl has worked with groups of all ages, from school kids to seniors, a wide range of abilities,
including troubled youth and handicapped, and even a young adult church group where half the dancers
Carl is also available for private & small group instruction in Basic Ballroom Dance, and DJ services
for Special Events and Weddings. Let Carl show the fun he can bring to your group/organization/event.
Carl Ballou grew up in a folk dancing family. Born & raised in San Jose, California, he was
dragged out onto the floor at a YMCA family folk dance camp at age 5 and introduced to fun
dances such as Hokey Pokey and Virginia Reel. Returning to the camp each Labor Day Weekend
with his family, by 14 he had learned waltz, polka, schottische, contra, quadrille, and
square dances, plus other folk dances from around the world.
In high school, Carl and his family were taking weekly classes and attending folk and square
dance festivals in the San Francisco Bay Area. By college, he was a popular square dance
caller. His love of dance and his enthusiasm for fun, family-oriented activities led him to
specialize in programs for groups that have no previous dance experience. Over the next two
decades Carl was a Dance Leader/MC for schools, churches, YMCA, company parties, youth and
senior citizen groups throughout the Bay Area.
Now living in Rogers, AR with his wife, Danette, he hopes to provide NW Arkansas & surrounding
communities with a unique and much needed social activity, to introduce everyone to a fun,
old-time family-oriented experience that America grew up with, before TV and the internet.
Whether it's a Church Social, Barn Dance, community picnic, youth club activity, or school
function - Dancing is Fun for Everyone, Set to Music!
