Here’s a look at Rivco 2014 “Callers from the Floor” 

November 8th, 2014

HISTORY: I  began Square Dance calling in 1980 in Oroville California. The clubs I called for were the Chico State Allemanders, Sierra Steppers, and the Table Mountain Stompers. It was a busy time. Calling 3 or 4 nights a week was not unusual.  I stopped calling in 1984.

My wife Liz and I re-entered the activity as “Retread” dancers in the last couple of years.  That old “calling bug” was calling my name  every time I stepped into a square dance hall and heard the music. After some encouragement from dancers I taught over 30 years ago and some “boundary” discussions with my wife,  I decided to dust off the old microphone and begin calling again. I recently joined Callerlab, and with that comes membership in BMI and ASCAP which provide music licensing and insurance.

We’re now calling on a regular basis. As we get more calling exposure, more inquiries are coming in for party dance bookings. It’s exciting to see the dancers interest and reaction to our calling efforts.  Keeping everyone  fully “entertained” is something I truly strive for.

My square dance calling philosophy is to challenge the experienced dancers as much as possible while allowing the not so experienced dancers a chance to participate and grow. I enjoy the calling and the teaching. Everybody should be having as much fun as possible! We would love to see you on the dance floor!
