My wife Idelma and I started square dancing in 1971. I became interested and started calling in 1974. I went to caller's school in 1975 and again in 1978. Each school was conducted by : Al Brundage (Fla.), Earl Johnson (Conn.) and Jack Lasery (Fla.)
In 1978 I started a club in Elkton called "Valley Squares", which danced until 1982.
In 1983 I was asked to call for the Greene Cloverleafs, of Standardsville, Va.
1986 the "Lords & Ladies" Culpeper, Va. (now Locust Grove, Va.)
1999 the "Grand Squares of Nelson" Afton, Va.
2004 the "Plains Promenaders" Timberville, Va.
At present I call regular for four clubs, plus a club called the "Shenandoah Stars" which dances DBD (Dance By Definition) and Hexagon Squares.
I also instruct Line Dancing. I guest call at other clubs and do special week-ends. I also am invited to call for social, church, and private groups.
I am a member of: American Callers Assoc., VSCA (Virginia State Callers Association), SVCC (Shenandoah Valley Callers Council) and VSRDA (Virginia Square and Round Association).
