I am based in the West Midlands where I belong to two clubs and call regularly at a number of clubs in the Midlands. I attend a number of costume balls each year as a dancer and am a member of a group of dancers which gives demonstrations of Playford and Playford style dances at various venues in the Midlands.

I call the full range of dances from Playford to American Contras, English Country Dances to Singing Squares with the occasional Scottish and Irish dance thrown in.

I include dances from 1650 to the present day and can construct a programme to your requirements whether this be a Playford Ball or a Social Saturday Dance.

"I think everyone has a really good time at the Ball and the dancing went very well even with quite a few beginners
I think credit goes to your caller who was excellent"
