In square dancing, we have the callers. In round dancing, we have the cuers. No matter which discipline you are a part of, they are the ones calling the shots and deciding which step comes next.
At SWOSDA, we decided that callers and cuers should have their own page, devoted to the resources they need to continue to improve and enhance their skills, because this leads to increased overall enjoyment for the dancers and other participants.
This page will serve as a resource for learning tools as well as the minutes of our meetings. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions for how to improve our site and what you would like to see added here.
Next Meeting – January 26, 2019 from 10 am till 12 noon.

To All Callers
This year is upon us and we are already in full swing. There are a few things I wanted to go over for the 2019-2020 season.
First of all, just to let you know, Jeff and I did the fair for 5 days and it was not as good as it has been in the past. We will hopefully be back into the Progress Building for next year.
The Frosh Dances will be on Sat March 14th and Sat April 18th from 7 to 930 at the Richards Memorial Church. I have not canvassed for the callers as of yet so if you would like to do a Frosh Dance please contact me as soon as you can so we can fill the spots. I also am happy about our newer callers and would like to get together to see how they are doing and have them do some caller encouragement sessions. I also think it is important to have them calling at the dances and starting their own clubs up so if you are a new caller and would like to have some input or some questions answered, please don’t hesitate to call or email me.
I would like to have at least one Callers Clinic meeting (hopefully on April 18th- the afternoon prior to the Frosh Dance) but it is at this time Hall Pending. We will all be at the 60th Anniversary dance and I hope that we will all get a chance to share any input you may have. Write it down and bring it with you.
We will see you there.
