I started doing English dance at age eleven and finally discovered contra dance eleven years later. I call as well as dance, and occasionally have the opportunity to play for dance. At the bottom of this page are some thumbnails for traditional styles of dance that I've done (or played for) as well as some contra/swing moves.
Below are some scenes from my first "big gig," calling at the Laurel Theater in Knoxville with the wonderful, awesome band "Flapjack" out of Ontario, Canada.
