Square Dancing

I started calling regularly in 1989 and gave it up for other things in life at the end of 1999. Now, we're back to dancing, and I'm ready to continue calling.

Pickin' & Grinnin'

Playing Bluegrass, Standards, and Folk Tunes, has always been a passion. These days there isn't nearly enough time to practice, but I still love to get together with friends to play.

Arm Turns -- Easy as Pie Sunday, 24 March 2013 17:57 I think the key to success at a club dance is to have a solid foundation with the Basics along with the ability to listen, trust, and react to directions from the caller. Most of the time these “directions” are simply the calls, but it has become increasingly fashionable for guest callers to alter the calls in some manner in order to provide more interest. Is there an unspoken assumption that a program’s calls cannot stand alone?
Dancer Mind Control Sunday, 24 March 2013 12:33 As much as we like to believe we are free to think and act as we choose, there is evidence to suggest that mind control is running rampant in the square dance activity! How do you avoid becoming a victim, without quitting and walking away?

Limited IE6 Template Support

The template has restricted support for IE6, inclusive, but not limited to the following areas: RTL (Left-To-Right) is non-functional, and will automatically degrade back to LTR; the forcing of the low background/body level; and the Fusion menu is degraded to Suckerfish, amongst other limitations.
