Dugan Murphy, Contra Dance Caller, is the acclaimed caller who brought you neon t-shirts, raucous pants, and hundreds of fun dance experiences across the U.S. He'll be teaching half the night, and excitedly introducing Jeannine Ameduri, a newer caller who will teach the other half of the night.
Last, Gawain Thomas, a talented musician and new caller from Massachusetts, will be calling a few dances during our evening.
