Callers and Cuers
for The Mississippi Squares Dance Club

Brian Crawford

Basic, Mainstream and Plus Caller / Teacher

BRIAN CRAWFORD has been calling since 1997. He and his charming wife Amy started dancing with the Mississippi Squares in 1991 to the calling of Graham Ingram.  They served on the executive for three years — as secretary couple for one year and as directors for two years.  

They have served as angels every year except for the one year they started the Town and Kountry Kickers with Geoff Clarke. They dance at the A2 level.  Brian teaches a popular spring workshop so club dancers and area dancers can develop their skills.  

Brian started calling in 1997 thanks to the intro course led by John Charman. Brian also received a lot of help from Mel Wilkerson and the Mississippi Squares during the first years.  He started calling for the Mississippi Squares, the Dynamite Tay's and the Bytown Squares in 1999 and at present he calls for both Mainstream and Plus weekly dances at the Mississippi Squares.  

He is a popular guest caller at special dances in the area.  Brian has had the opportunity to call for different clubs across Ontario, Quebec and the USA — a privilege which he and Amy enjoy. 

Jean Clingin and Don Clingin

Round Dance Cuer / Teacher

Jean and Don Clingin are popular round-dance teachers and cuers. They regularly cue rounds for many large dances including the Halfway Dance, Frosty Fling and Riverside Gypsy Squares.

Jean and Don taught a popular spring workshop at Mississippi Squares. They perform teaches and workshops following the Roundalab dance definitions, round-dance parties and cueing rounds between square dance tips. With over 15 years of teaching and cueing rounds, they have developed an effective teaching style for helping dancers to learn new dance skills, at the same time as creating an interesting and enjoyable evening of dance. At present, they cue the popular Wednesday evening round dance at the Mississippi Squares.

Bob and Marguerite Summers

Special-Events Caller

BOB SUMMERS is our special-events caller.  Sometimes Bob fills in when our regular caller, Brian Crawford, is unavailable.  Bob and Marguerite can also provide the entertainment and music for these events.

The Mississippi Squares Dance Club regularly presents Modern Square Dance demonstrations at local fairs and concerts. Club members also dance on floats in parades — such as the Santa Claus Parade in Carleton Place.  They provide entertainment at local shopping plazas and senior citizens residences.
