It was amazing to see so much of my square dance family at the 70th National Square Dance Convention in Jackson, MS. It felt so good to be back!
2019 marked the 30th Anniversary for the Indiana Square & Round Dance Convention. This was also my 10th year to call at the Indiana Convention! Time sure flies when you’re having fun.
Not only was this a special year for the state and for me, it was also exciting because my parents were the General Chairman – they did an amazing job! Shout-out to the entire Convention Board for a great event!
Friday night my family hosted the after party. We had several performances and even a live showing of Dancer Feud (in the style of Family Feud). It was a great time!
Saturday I hosted 2 Hex workshops. The morning session introduced the idea of dancing with 6 couples in a hexagon formation. During the afternoon, we learned more about how to adapt calls to the hexagon. Everyone had a great time learning and practicing something new!
I had a great weekend calling and dancing at the Michigan State Square Dance Convention in Lansing, MI! Featured callers, Bob Asp, Curt Braffet & Tom Manning did a great job throughout the weekend. I enjoyed seeing many of my friends from Michigan and making new friends too!
I had a fantastic time at the Indiana Square and Round Dance Convention!
Friday night started out with a great dance by featured caller Tom Miller. The theme was "Back to the 50's" and I love seeing so many people dressed in 50's attire! Saturday was full with square and round dancing at all levels, workshops, competition, education sessions, and more!
Finally we ended a packed weekend with the Sunday morning Gospel Finale!
The Indiana Convention is one of my favorite times of the year because I get to see so many good friends in one place!
Join us next year in French Lick for our 30th Convention - November 8, 9 & 10, 2019!
It's always an honor to get to call with Kristy! Check out the above video of us calling on Friday night in the main hall just before the President's Ball.
More than 3,100 dancers attended the 67th National Square Dance Convention in Kansas City, MO. I was one of those lucky dancers! The Convention offers a variety of programming for attendees including squares, rounds, lines, contra, education panels, seminars, sewing clinics, and plenty of opportunities for networking with attendees from around the world! We danced from 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM Thursday through Saturday and had an absolute blast! I had so much fun seeing old friends and making new ones too! I've posted a short slideshow below.
Super thanks to Eric Henerlau for taking the video! ☺
In September, I attended my first KY State Square Dance Convention!
