OUR CLUB CALLER - PAUL WATERS
Paul, a third generation Californian, first became interested in square dancing during his senior year in high school when he took a beginners class with the Conejo Swingers, a teen club in Thousand Oaks. Although the class started in February 1972, a scant ten month’s later he decided to try his hand (voice?) at calling, and started a calling class the following December.
Dancing has always been an important part of his life. Over the years this has included participation in international folk dancing, square dancing, round dancing, international competitive ballroom dancing, clogging, contra and country western. Fred Astaire would be impressed.
Presently he teaches classes for the Tinseltown Squares of Los Angeles, as well as calling for dance engagements as far away as Cleveland, Ohio, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and Dijon, France (Love their mustard).
Paul’s decision to join the Trail Dusters “family” is a wonderful reunion. Paul actually called for the Trail Dusters some 20 years ago. We welcome him back with open arms and are thrilled that he will be our caller and teacher.
SOCIAL SQUARE DANCE PROGRAM
COMING SOON TO A CLUB NEAR YOU!
Modern music, as easy as walking, casual attire, fun, friendship and a great easy fitness activity!!
This is a 12 - 14 week program designed to teach 50 basic square dance moves such that the dancers can more quickly attend dances, feel comfortable with their ability and have lots of fun. It is also designed to have extended applications - once the dancers are comfortable with the first 50, the caller can then introduce slightly more complex calls. The purpose of this program is to attract more people into our activity with a shorter learning time - as it will take no time at all for the new dancers to be out and dancing. It is designed for couples, singles and families AND to be a social activity as well as a dancing one.
