Lottie Ainsworth  

In 1995, friends encouraged Lottie to learn square dancing. She convinced husband Ray to try it; they both were hooked. Lottie had always had a flair for entertaining. As a square dancer, she provided a variety of entertainment and skits for numerous events and parties. She was affectionately known around the local square dancing community as "Lulu"(the character she sometimes personified). In May 2000 at a local barn dance, "Lulu" surprised her friends by calling a tip with one of the local callers as a part of her act. Not knowing that she had never called before some visiting dancers wanted to hire her to call at their club. Lottie has called in 30 states and in British Columbia, Canada. She has called at state conventions or regional festivals in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas. She has called at 10 National Square Dance Conventions and at the 2008 Convention, she was featured vocalist for the Fashion Show audience prior to the event. She and Ray have attended 5 Callerlab Conventions. She was a participant in the Callerlab Foundation Caller School prior to the St. Paul Convention and in the GSI Caller school prior to the Charlotte Convention. She is the recipient of numerous caller scholarships from various square dance organizations. She is a member of the Texas State Callers Association and maintains BMI/ASCAP licensing as a member of Callerlab. She is one of six vocalists on the special fund-raiser recording "When The Saints Go Marching In" under the SD4K (SquareDancers4Katrina) label produced by Grand Square, Inc. (all proceeds from this recording go to victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita). She is on the caller staff and currently records with Hi-Hat Records and Dance Ranch label. She has also recorded 2 promotional CDs featuring a variety of her favorite square dance tunes and recordings.
