Pat and I started square dancing in 1976 in Fergus falls Minn. I started calling in 1977 to a group of six squares of young people. Soon after that we were dancing at many clubs and I was asked to call a tip or two at many dances which I really appreciated. That got us started and since then we have started many clubs and I have taught hundreds to square dance since then. I have called many one night stands of various types. I have mentored many callers to help them get started. Square dancing has been our life since then. I have been blessed with an ability to let people smile and have fun.
