Caller and fiddler, contras and squares

Welcome to my dance website.
(Curious? Here's a brief view of what I do for a living.)
These pages are (mostly) about my favorite hobby: traditional contra and square dancing and calling.
For a general overview of contra dancing, read Greg Rohde's awesome description, or see this newsclip about contra dancing in Chicago.

If I was ever in an emergency situation and needed a little voice in the back of my head to tell me
exactly what I must do to survive, Carol Ormand's calm, cool, and clear voice is the one
I would want to hear.
-- Julie San Felipe, contra dancer
