Calling 101 Workshop!

  • Hazeldean Community League 9930 66th Avenue NW Edmonton, Alberta Canada (map)

Come learn how to call contra dances!

I’ll be traveling to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for a weekend of teaching and calling.

On Saturday, December 1, 2018, I'll be teaching a 5-hour class that trains new callers in the basics. Then, on Sunday, December 2, these callers will have the opportunity to call with live musicians from 1-3:30 at a public dance.

Topics covered in Calling 101 include how dances are structured, how choreography fits with the music, how to teach dances, how to prompt, and best practices in calling. Ample time is provided for practice and feedback with live dancers during the class.

Callers are also invited to call at a contra dance the day following the class to gain experience calling with live musicians. Post-class resources include guidance on collecting dances and a beginner's choreography resource. 

Limit of eleven participants - ALMOST FULL!
