|Professional square dance caller.
Greg, and former wife Rosie,
graduated square dance lessons in 1979 with the Swinging Squares of
Kansas City, Missouri, caller Dick Naudet. Because of a quick
friendship with Mr. Naudet, Greg was starting to write choreography
before graduation from dance lessons. Greg started his calling
career shortly after graduation, from square dance class, at an
amateur caller?s night and he was hooked on calling. Greg had always
had a passion for puzzles and chess and found the choreography
Greg was employed at Ford Motor
Company for 33 years as a production worker. He attributes his
calling in part to Ford and the ability to see body flow of the
dancers and the body flow required to work on an assembly line. In
translation, countless hours of production line work of right and
left meant rehearsal time for Greg's choreography. Greg retired from
Ford in July of 2006.
Greg has called in and around
Kansas City for thirty years. He has been club caller for the Tea
Cup Squares, Greg?s Gang, and Top Railers and has traveled over the
mid-west calling club dances and festivals. Greg has also been
working in his accreditation from Callerlab for Caller Coach.
Greg is well known in the mid-West
for his smile and fun loving personality. His flowing and creative
choreography coupled with the different styles of music always seems
to make for a fun evening of dancing.
