Workshop Flyer

Please arrive 10 minutes early. The workshop will start promptly at 2:00pm. Please RSVP to so we know how many to expect. Dancers are welcome to help us practice, 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Some of the topics we will cover: how dance music is structured, how dances fit the music, placing calls in time to the music, the importance of the walk through, and how to choose dances to call.

Even if you don’t plan to get in front of the microphone, you’re welcome to come learn more about the caller’s job. It could even improve your dancing or dance-playing skills!

To practice calling, we’ll need dancers! Invite your friends to come dance with us from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. And stick around for our regular dance starting at 7:30pm.
