Profile in Callers and Cuers

 No picture available 

Dave was introduced to square dancing in 1952 at the age of 15. He began calling the same year. Most dances at that time were live music. His abilities as a caller were very limited for several years. While with the air force and stationed in Hawaii, Dave began calling for the "Hayseeds" square dance club. He continued calling for them until 1959 when he returned to Arizona. After being discharged from the service in 1959 he purchased his first real sound system and started calling for the Sunset Squares which later became Merry Mixers. Western Whirlers square dance club was founded in 1963 by Dave and he still calls for them today. Dave became a full time square dance caller in 1992 and enjoys calling more than ever. Over the years, he has called in many states and several foreign countries. Dave called for the Green Valley Squares in Green Valley for over eleven years. In 2004 Dave took over the calling duties at The Voyager R.V. Resort in Tucson where he conducts a full program. He also is the caller for Swinging Saguaros. Dave and Ginny helped to co-host the Germany trips in 1999 and 2005. If you ask Dave what draws him to square dancing calling he would say "the fun of it and the nicest people in the world". "The good people you meet and the great friends you make are what is important". That is why Dave still calls square dances after all these years.
