Thread Name: What makes a good caller?
Subject: RE: What makes a good caller?
Hugh Rippon almost invariably uses the Farandole at wedding-type ceilidhs, leading it himself (usually in company with the prettiest girl in the room I might add!!) Great way to get nervous first-time dancers used to moving in concert. Another point to remember as a caller: tell the band exactly what you want played. In my Peeping Tom days, if a caller forgot to mention what music they wanted, we'd launch into "Isle of Capri", a rather dashing tango. Didn't half wake them up.
