Biography

I come from the traditional dance world — contras and squares with live music and the old “if you can walk, you can dance” ethos.  I’ve been an active dance caller ranging from New England to West Virginia for more than 25 years.

Family dances, dance parties, barn dances, wedding dances — those kinds of events are a specialty.  Working with live music or with recordings, I create an environment where everyone feels good and participation levels are high.

I work closely with hosts/organizers to be sure to include all the elements that you want, and coach everyone in advance, create timelines where appropriate and generally work with you to create a fun, satisfying event.

I travel throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania PA, New York NY, Connecticut CT and Delaware DL, and further on special occasions.
