HOW DOES THE CALLER RUN MY EVENT?

BARN DANCE 

The  Barn Dance Caller normally will supply his own Recorded Music using a sound system plus a Microphone for instructions, live bands can be obtained if within your budget.

To start the Dancing the Caller will  introduce, explain and teach various Dances using different standard formations such as Circles, Squares and Longways,  Calling or prompting the dancers where to go, what to do, and who to do it with!!

The Dances are sometimes walked through to start with without music, sometimes with music to give a feel for the rhythm and speed of each dance, generally its accepted no one will be perfect!!

During the course of the evening the dancers will learn various movements, increase their Dancing skills whilst of course thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Dont forget the Caller is in charge--always reminding people what to do--so there is no need for anyone to worry about forgetting the next move or doing the wrong thing---even so Dancers can get confused--which is part of the FUN!

The emphasis is on having FUN and not taking things too seriously.

The big advantage normally of having a Barn Dance evening with an experienced Caller is that dancing starts at the beginning of the evening not at the end.

There are breaks between Dances to get your breath back and socialise with friends, music playing in the background will keep toes tapping away whilst looking forward to the next Dance.
