General Background 

Square Dance Background 

  • I started dancing in 1975 in a teen club where I met my future wife Debbie. We started dancing advanced level in 1977 (while we were in high school). A year later we started learning challenge and I developed an interest in calling. I occasionally walked our tape group through some material that I had written. Later I tried 'calling' the material accompanied by taped music. After that, I purchased a Hilton sound system and microphone and jumped into learning how to call.
  • I started calling in November 1981 (at the challenge level). I currently call at levels Basic through C4. I have taught classes at all levels from Basic through C3B.
  • I am a self-taught caller and have never attended a caller's school as a student (whether this is good or bad is debatable). However, I have taken about six months of weekly voice lessons, and have learned calling skills from observing other callers and listening to criticism and comments made by callers and dancers.
  • I have called in 31 states and 8 countries (other than USA).
  • I've called at the National Square Dance Convention in Birmingham (1985), Houston (1987), Anaheim (1988), Anaheim (2001), and Long Beach (2009).
  • I am currently a permanent staff caller at the Academy for Advanced and Challenge Enthusiasts (AACE) Convention.
