Profile in Caller and Cuer Database

Bob Barnes

Robert "Bob" Barnes is originally from Northern Michigan and started calling in 1962 in Traverse City, MI. He also began to cue and teach round dances. In 1965 he moved to Bridgeman, MI and had his own square dance hall called the Alamo. In 1975 he moved to New Port Richey, FL where he was a full-time caller and cuer and called seven days a week from Basic through C2, while working as a travel agent on the side. He was fortunate enough to be able to travel to many countries in Europe and around the world and got paid to do it. He recorded on several different square dance recording labels and wrote many round dance routines. Much of his time during the winter months was spent in Florida calling in such places as New Port Richey, Englewood, Fort Myers, St. Petersburg, Lakeland, Zephyrhills and Jacksonville. He spent a lot of time at Strawberry Square in Plant City as well. In 1992 he married Shirley Myers and they continue to teach round dancing from Phase II through V, although he retired from square dance calling in 2010. They now live in Michigan near his children.
