Subject: RE: What makes a good caller?
What a helpful lot you all are - and no one felt the need to use bad language or be scoring points off each other.
Bob - I really liked your idea of describing things in 2 different ways. I've tried to ' de sex ' my calling so its accepted for 2 ladies or ( less frequently )2 men to dance together. Still strugling with that - as its so much easier to use the conventional man1 woman2. I shall go back to the drawing board and think about how to call 2 ways in a non sexist way.
Some of the technical stuff you advised won't work for my set up as I lead the tunes as well as call.
So how would you get a set of totally novice dancers - never done this before - into a square set?
