This is a class designed and taught by contra dance caller Bob Isaacs for contra callers who have little or lots of experience calling.  If you want to up your game as a caller, this is for you! This is not an introductory workshop.

  • 10:00-10:30: Discussion of neighbor interaction in contra choreography to figure out where teaching points are most needed and to figure out which choreography is more or less helpful for newer dancers

  • 10:30-11:00: Discussion of prompting with music beyond the basic prompts, adding information in advance of a prompt and following up on a prompt to help dancers navigate the dance

  • 11:00-12:00: Calling practice

  • 12:00-12:30: Lunch (fridge, stove, toaster oven, and microwave oven available)

  • 12:30-1:00: Discussion of writing and calling medleys

  • 1:00-3:00: Calling practice
