Les Gotcher
 Square Dance Caller
 
ID: 80
Les Gotcher

Les was one of the first to visualize the challenges of Square Dancing, he surprised the Square Dance world by combining the basics, a forerunner of much of the sight calling and position dancing of today. As an author of many texts on calling, Les became a model for countless young callers coming into the activity. His manual "Les Gotcher On Sight Calling" captures the fundamentals that every caller should know.
