Dan began square dancing in 1988 with his wife Gail. In 1989 they joined the Ramblin' Rogues Square Dance club. After many years of dancing and being officers in the club he started to help the beginners class "pre-warm-up" the 30 minutes before each class.

Dan got hooked, and the bug of becoming a caller became quite clear. At the SD Nationals in Long Beach, CA in 2009 he took his first caller class. He then took a second caller class at the SD Nationals in Louisville, KY in 2010 and called for the first time there to 15 squares in a packed hall.

His first professional dance came in September of 2010 for the Dancing Stars with 14 squares of supportive friends. He picked up other dances and guest tips along with teaching his own Plus-level DBD workshop. He now calls all over California from Mainstream level through A1.

Dan will be teaching the Church Mice beginners class starting this September in Garden Grove, CA and is looking forward to teaching new dancers how great square dancing is.

Dan calls over 50 dances a year, including California State and National conventions. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology from University of Phoenix.

Dan is a part-time caller and is looking to eventually becoming a National full-time caller. Be sure to keep checking his Calendar.
