As a longtime dancer, I had been thinking about how I could give back to the
dance community. Calling seemed to be a need in my area, and seemed easier to
pick up than playing an instrument!
After years of workshops from some of the very best - Robert Cromartie, Nils
Fredland, Tom Hinds, Adina Gordon - and taking the mic for split evenings and
community dances, I called my first solo night in January 2010. Since then,
I have called whenever and wherever my schedule allows me. I discovered that
although I LOVE to dance, I also get tremendous satisfaction in assisting a
roomful of people to have a great evening by calling.
Dancers describe me as clear, approachable, friendly and inclusive.
To me, my night is a success if I've taken care of the dancers and
given them what they want and need so they keep coming back for more.
